If you have children up to the age of 19 years in full-time education at a Hillingdon school, you may claim for free school meals if you receive a qualifying benefit.
You must be receiving one of the following benefits to claim free school meals:
Local authorities do not set the qualifying criteria for free school meals and we are unable to waive them. Any change to the criteria is a matter for central, not local government.
If you have a child starting school for the first time, and already receive free school meals for other children, you will still need to complete a new application.
You can apply online at https://myfreeschoolmeals.com and get an immediate answer. If you are eligible, your child’s school will be notified within five working days.

If you have any questions about applying for free school meals, please contact us on 020 8845 6266.
Please contact the school immediately if your benefit changes or ends, as it may mean that you no longer qualify to claim free school meals. If it is found that you did not notify us that you were no longer entitled to claim free school meals, you will be invoiced for the cost of all school meals taken free to which your child(ren) were not entitled.
