Our new Education Portal is now live for 2 year old funding applications here.

Please note you will need to create an account the first time you log in to our new Education Portal.

From 14 April to apply for free school meals, you will need to access the Education Portal and get a provisional result in less than ten minutes. If you do not have access to the internet or do not have an email address you can complete a paper form which is available at your child’s school. The last day to apply for Free School Meals using the online form will be 9 April.

Please continue to apply for school admissions via the Citizen Portal (link). From September 2023 these will also move to the new Education Portal so you will be able to access all applications including Early Years funding and Free School Meal entitlement and all school applications (starting school, junior, secondary and in year applications) from one account.
