Children whose parents receive certain Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) benefits and Inland Revenue Tax Credits may qualify for pupil benefits
from Hackney Council. Parents can get free school meals when their child starts school, a clothing grant when transferring from primary to secondary
schools at age 11 and help with home to school travel fares.
To apply for any of the above pupil benefits you will need to complete specific application forms available from our office in Reading Lane and
online from our website.
