Free School Meal Entitlement

If you are on a low income (employed or self-employed), claiming Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit, you may be entitled to Free School Meals for your child. Waltham Forest Council Benefits Service will be able to advise you. Once your child is in full time school you can apply. New Reception starters please be sure that the entitlement is in place at the time of your child starting school.


The government has decided that from September 2014, all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be able to have a free school meal at lunchtime. This offer does not depend on your household income or whether you receive any benefits - every child in these year groups is eligible to take up the offer. Due to this we will be making changes to the booking of school meals. Currently, your child/children are able to change weekly. From September 2014 all meal plans will change to half termly, the first block will be September to October half term.
