The Education Awards team assess applications for home to school transport and free school meals.
Free School Meals
Parents can apply via Healthy Living School Meals on the Essex County Council website. If parents need support to complete the application, you can also access the online form via Infolink on our Free School Meals page.
Home to School Transport
Please see Travelling to School on the Essex County Council website, or for more general information on travelling around Essex, please see Getting around Essex. (See the quick link on the home page for a list of our approved transport providers if you are planning a school trip).
Free School Meal entitlement lists
Where a child is entitled, they will appear on your entitlement list via Infolink and you should first check this list.
You should only contact the Council if the parent/carer has received an entitlement letter and their child is still not appearing on the Infolink list. The contact details can be found on the My School Page.
