Since September 2014, there has been a statutory requirement for schools in England to provide free school meals to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Whilst all pupils in these year groups will be provided with a free school meal, it is important that, if you think you are eligible to receive a free school meal, you continue to apply to Nottinghamshire County Council.
Existing entitlements to free school meals for disadvantaged pupils in nursery classes and at Key Stages 2-4 will continue as they do now, based on the existing free school meals eligibility criteria:
There will be no change to the process for applying for free school meals. Families receiving a qualifying benefit must continue to apply to Nottinghamshire County Council.
