Universal Infant Free School Meals (UiFSM)- Reception to Year 2
All pupils in reception years one and two are entitled to a free meal, without having to apply for this option.
However, if your child be could also be entitled to the Free School Meal (FSM) entitlement which enables the school to receive additional funding, please refer to the information below and make an application to the County Council.
Free School Meals
These are available to people who are classed as unemployed and receiving a qualifying benefit.
However, they are not automatically available, as an application needs to be completed and return it to the school or free school meal office at County Hall. An application cannot be made retrospectively as the process is a set criterion and there is no appeals process.
Children who receive income support, or income-based jobseekers' allowance in their own right are also entitled to claim free meals under the same application process.
If a child attends school, or the parent/guardian resides, in Northumberland the applicant can apply to Northumberland authority for free school meals.
Refunds for free school meals are only made in exceptional circumstances. These are handled on an individual basis by the school.
If you need any help or further information please contact Mrs. Taylor. All enquiries are strictly confidential.
