What happens if my free school meal benefit entitlement stops?

Universal free school meals

Your child’s entitlement to universal free school meals will continue until they enter Year 3 of school; you may need to reapply after this time if you believe you meet the eligible criteria.

Government free school meals

If your child is currently receiving free school meals, even if your circumstances change your child who is currently receiving the meals will be protected to receive them until March 2022.
