If you receive a qualifying benefit and your child is starting secondary school with us in September 2024, you may be eligible for free school meals, school clothing grants or school journey grants for your child. 

You are required to complete an online eligibility form with the Royal Borough of Greenwich (you must complete this form even if you live in another borough as your child will be attending a school in Greenwich).  

The contact details for the pupil benefit department at the Royal Borough of Greenwich are: 

Pupil Benefits, 
The Woolwich Centre, 
35 Wellington Street, 
London SE18 6HQ 

Telephone: 020 8921 2530 


Please note that if you are in receipt of Free School Meals already, you are still required to reapply via the link above as your child is entering a new phase of education and in some cases starting a new school. 

Please ensure that you state that your child will be attending St Mary Magdalene C of E Secondary Phase in September 2024. It is recommended that you apply as soon as possible, especially if you are applying for a school uniform grant, as the pupil benefit department will be dealing with a lot of new claims. 

Once you have received confirmation of your eligibility for Free School Meals, please scan your letter and email a copy to:
