How do I claim free school meals for my child/children?

We are using a new online Free School Meals Application Service.  Applications can be made online directly by parents/carers or by school on behalf of parents/carers.

Applications only need to be completed once during your child's time at Chaddesden Park Primary School, which removes the need for re-application where eligibility continues.  We are asking every family to complete an application even if you are not currently eligible.

You can apply directly at   or download and complete The Free School Meals Claim Form and return it to school, where we will make an application on your behalf.  Forms are also available at the school office
