Free School Meals


Important Information for Parents / Guardians.

Is your Child entitled to Free Schools Meals?

Children whose parents receive the following support payments are entitled to receive Free School Meals in maintained schools in Wales:

*Children who receive IS or IBJSA in their own right are also eligible to receive free school lunches.

How do I apply?


Alternatively, if you are already in receipt of Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit from WCBC please call the Support Services section on 01978 297413 to discuss your eligibility for free school meals.

The Authority may check with your Benefits Agency, on-line, to confirm the benefits you receive.

What do I do if my entitlement to benefit ends?

It is your responsibility to inform Support Services immediately your qualifying benefit stops or is withdrawn. If you fail to let us know, you will be charged for the full cost of any school meals taken by your child(ren) from the date your benefit ended.
