Benefits & support Apply for free school meals

What happens after you apply

It takes a few weeks to deal with your claim. But you can still get free school meals while you are waiting. The school will give free school meals for four weeks if you have claimed from us, and you show them evidence of the benefits you get.

We will give you the full details about how to do this at the end of the form.

When we have dealt with your claim, we will tell you and the school if your child is entitled to receive free school meals.

If the details you have given us change while we are dealing with your claim then you need to let us know straight away.
