Do you receive Working Tax credit?

If you or a partner receive Working Tax Credit, regardless of income you will not qualify for free school meals.

If I qualify, when will my child get free school meals?

If you qualify, the majority of claims are dealt with the same day and your entitlement will start the day after. A letter of entitlement will be issued to you and we will notify the school.
