The LGfL Free School Meals Eligibility Checker

As part of the LGfL service we provide a Free School Meals Eligibility Checker used in over 100 Local Authorities and thousands of schools across the UK

We are delighted to announce enhancements to the free school means service following feedback from schools:

  • An LGfL school can check eligibility on behalf of a parent, the parent will need to contact your child's school, as they can run a check on your behalf.
  • A Parent of a Child attending any LGfL school can now use this website to check their eligibility.
  • A Certificate of Eligibility is available through our website for any child eligible for a free school meal that is attending a school in England. The Certificate of Eligibility should be taken to your child's school.
