From September 2014 the Government has confirmed that ALL pupils in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 in a local authority maintained school (not private) will be eligible to have a Free School Meal.
This will be called a Universal Free School Meal.
For all other pupils it will depend on the family circumstances. Usually if you are in receipt of means tested benefits your child will be eligible for free school meals.
Clothing allowance for school uniforms is currently only available for pupils in Year 7 and Year 9.
