Free School Meals and Milk
The Government recognises the benefits of providing a healthy school meal to the most disadvantaged pupils. The Education Act 1996 requires maintained schools and academies to provide free school meals to disadvantaged pupils who are aged between 5 and 16 years old. We want to make sure as many eligible pupils as possible are claiming their free school meals, and we want to make it as easy as possible for schools. NCC uses the Department for Education free schools meals eligibility checking system to determine eligibility. Parents only need to provide their National Insurance Number or National Asylum Support Service Reference Number, surname and date of birth. NCC can carry out these assessments for academy and special schools. These schools can request a quote for this service below.
