Please note, all children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 will receive a healthy, nutritionally
balanced school meal but the school does not receive the funding unless you apply. From
Year 3 onwards, you must apply to ensure your child receives the meals and their school
receives the funding.
*Saving based on average UK cost of providing a packed lunch each day. If you pay for
school meals, you can save almost £100 in Primary schools and almost £255 in Secondary
schools by applying for Free School Meals.
Please note, once your application has been accepted, your child will continue to receive
Free School Meals as long as you remain on the qualifying benefit. You do not need to
reapply annually or if your child moves school within the Hull area.
