Families could save hundreds of pounds a year and parents can register now to check if they’re entitled. If eligible, pupils don’t have to have the meals every day and are offered the same food and sit in the same area to eat.

Parents can sign up to free school meals at any time of the year and the process is quick and easy.

To qualify, parents should be in receipt of:

Councillor Alex Dale, DCC Cabinet Member for Education, said:

“If you’re eligible, free school meals are a great way to save some money and provide pupils with a nutritious hot meal. You can check if you’re entitled to a meal at any time during the year but we’re encouraging parents to do it at the start of the new term to get the maximum benefit.”

“It’s a very quick and easy online form and our team will be in touch within a week to let you know if you’re eligible.”

Find out more and check if you're eligible for free school meals or call the team on 01629 536481.
