Free School Meals for children starting school in September 2015

The Free School Meals team is currently working on ensuring that as many children as possible are registered for Free School Meals for the start of the new school year in September.

We have identified all children of reception year age and are in the process of contacting parents inviting them to apply.

Following the introduction of Universal Free School Meals last year we are committed to ensuring eligibility based Free School Meal take up does not decrease and schools are able to maximise pupil premium funding. For children in other year groups we routinely identify children who should be on Free School Meals and invite their parents to apply also.

There is lots of information about Free School Meals on our dedicated page on Bradford Schools Online if you need information about how you can further encourage take up in your own school. There are also details about our online application form which is now our preferred method of application as it gives an immediate result of eligibility.

Please note that this information only applies to schools who have opted to use the Council’s  services.
