    Free School Meals

    If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 you do not have to pay for your child’s school meal as you qualify for the Universal Infant Free School Meal.

    How to apply for Free School Meals

    If you feel your child is entitled to Free School Meals, you must apply by completing an application form. You only have to apply once. Hackney Learning Trust will check your entitlement against information held by the Department for Education on a regular basis so that you don’t have to renew your application every year or provide proof of your entitlement.

    You will need to first register to apply online for Free School Meals/Pupil Premium within Hackney Citizens Portal.

    The Hackney Citizens Portal is the quickest way to apply for free school meals/pupil premium and confirm your eligibility.

    After you have completed your application you will receive an email to confirm your eligibility, you can then bring this into the school office as proof of your entitlement. Hackney Learning Trust will also send out a notification to us here at school confirming your child’s FSM and Pupil Premium eligibility.
