Please register for free school meals as soon as possible to make sure your child and doesn’t miss out.

How Does it Work?

First, check if you qualify - it is not just if you are unemployed, so please look at the list below.

Registering is really quick and easy - if you think you qualify simply complete the form below or go onto and A-Z click on S, click schools, click Free School Meal, and click Apply on line. You will need a valid email address to apply online.

If you do qualify, your child will receive a free, healthy meal at lunchtimes (saving you nearly £600 per year).

No one will know you have registered, and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

You can register your child for Free School Meals if you receive any of these benefits:

• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit, providing you or your partner are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of £16,190 or less.
• Assistance from the UK Border Agency.

Upon receipt of applications, either directly though the Academy or by completing the online process, Ealing Council will contact you to confirm if your child is entitled or not.

Students can also register for Free School Meals if they receive any of these benefits themselves.

I agree for the Alec Reed Academy to process my application for Free School Meals, via the London Borough of Eailing, using the information provided. Please tick box*
