Free School Meals and Help To Buy Uniform

Free School Meals and Help To Buy Uniform

Families on low incomes across the city are being encouraged to check if they are eligible to claim Free School Meals for their children.

With many families facing difficulties and money worries due to the continued impact of the pandemic on people’s employment and incomes, the Council is keen to ensure that everyone who is entitled to receive support does get the help they need.

As well as Free School Meals, extra help is now also available for families to buy school uniform with the Pupil Development Grant being extended to include more year groups than ever before.

Families with children in Reception, Year 1, Year 3, Year 5, Years 7 to 11 can apply for funding to help buy the kit they need for school. Families can claim £125 per child and £200 if their child is in Year 7.

The extension to include more year groups is for this academic year only and parents have until June 30th 2021 to apply. Only one grant per child per year is allowed so families who have already received funding for the current school year will not be able to claim again.

To check if you’re eligible for free school meals or the Pupil Development Grant, visit

Do you think someone you know might be eligible or does your Council role bring you into contact with families who could use this extra support?

Please encourage anyone who may be eligible to check out if they qualify. Speak to the Adviceline on 029 20871071 for further information.
