Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)
In 2014 the UIFSM policy was introduced. All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 are entitled to a free meal every day, regardless of personal circumstances. Please note this is subject to change with government policy.
Free School Meals (Income Based)
Between April and November 2020, over 3,000 additional families across Derbyshire became eligible for free school meals. Could free school meals help your family?
You can sign up for free school meals at any time of year, and either you or your partner can claim for your children, as long as you live at the same address.
To ensure families do not miss out, we regularly check if parents have become eligible. Register now and let us check if you are entitled, it could save you over £470 a year per child.
Even if you meet any or all of the criteria, families will not be eligible if they are claiming Working Tax Credit.
