During the COVID-19 emergency if your child is in reception, year 1 or year 2 and is not attending school, you may be able to apply for a free school meal until schools return to normal opening.
Older children can also get free school meals, but you have to apply.
Your child will get a free school meal if you receive a qualifying benefit, and your child is:
- at school
- studying in further education
- at a sixth form college
