Free School Meals

Free School Meals

Some of our parents are entitled to claim free school meals

Can I apply for free school meals?

You can apply for school meals if you receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit
  • The ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (you will need to apply directly to the school not Bradford Council)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit

Apply now for Free School Meals

School meals are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – Why do I still need to apply?

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals, but if you receive one of the benefits from the list above you may also get help with:

  • School uniform costs (speak to your school about this)
  • Council run music lessons at school

For each child registered for free school meals, schools receive a pupil premium of £1,300 (Primary schools) or £935 (Secondary schools) per year. This money is to help your child achieve their best at school so it is very important you still apply.

What if my circumstances change?

If your circumstances change or your child changes school you need to tell us as your entitlement may change.

To report a change in your circumstances please email us at benefits@bradford.gov.uk or write to us at Benefits Service, Britannia House, Hall Ings, Bradford, BD1 1HX
