For all initial queries regarding free school meals and all HB/CTR enquiries, parents can use Benefits@swansea.gov.uk.
All pupils entering Reception class in Swansea this September 2022 will be offered free school meals. Swansea Council is working closely with schools to extend the offer to other year groups as soon as possible as we work towards implementing the Welsh Government's commitment for every primary school pupil to receive a free school meal by 2024.
Families of children entering Reception do not need to apply for the school meal offer as they will be automatically enrolled at their school. However, families on low income may be eligible for other benefits such as school uniform and money off school trips. In order to assess eligibility for this, an application for free school meals can be made here.
Parents who are confirmed eligible for free school meals still need to apply separately for the school uniform grant.
Further information can also be found on the gov.wales/get help with school costs webpage.
