Free School Meals/School Uniform/Physical Education Clothing Allowance 2021-22

I would like to provide you with an update on the 2021/22 application process for Free School Meals and School Uniform/ Physcial Education Clothing Allowances.

The Education Authority (EA) will be issuing communications on the EA website and social media channels to inform parents/ guardians and continues to seek your support to promote awareness of Free School Meals and Clothing Allowances, and to encourage all potential applicants to apply for the support available.
Current Eligible Families and New Applicants

Parents/guardians who are currently in receipt of support for the 2020/21 school year will not be sent a pre-populated form for the 2021/22 school year. All parents/ guardians (including new applicants) are required to apply on-line from Monday, 7 June 2021 via the EA website

It is recommended that parents/ guardians apply during the month of June, or as early as possible, to enable applications to be processed for support to be in place for their children for the new school year. Parents/ guardians are being advised of the importance of providing valid Bank or Building Society account details in the claimant’s own name. Payments cannot be made into Post Office accounts.
