Are you eligible for free school meals?
A new Citizen Portal has been launched to help you find out if your child qualifies for free school meals.
Please visit to sign up, even if your child is in year R, 1 or 2 and receiving universal free school meals, or if you have applied before and do not think you are eligible.
