Free School Meals – information and action for primary schools

Over the next couple of months the Free School Meals team will be focussing efforts on identifying children who will be in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 from September 2014 and inviting their parents to apply for Free School Meals.

As you are aware, these children will be receiving a free meal from September 2014 but it's still important that their parents apply for Free School Meals IF they are on qualifying benefits.

This work is starting now and will continue through the summer months in order that full take-up is achieved before the October school census.

You can help us by making sure your parents understand the importance of still claiming Free School Meals. There is lots of information for parents on Bradford Council’s website and they can apply online for Free School Meals on the site.

If you have any queries please contact the Free School Meals team.
