We are unable to backdate entitlement to free school meals; your children are not eligible to receive them prior to the date you have successfully applied for them.

At Stratford upon Avon School, the free school meal allowance is available for students to take during the lunchtime break ONLY; this helps to ensure that all students have an opportunity to partake in a hot & healthy meal instead of a snack at break time.
