How is the information about free school meals used?

This information is shared (securely) with those who are responsible for supporting you at university or college (e.g. the student services team).

Knowing about your circumstances may also help admissions staff to take your achievements into account and gain a better understanding of your achievements and potential in context. They may be able to offer additional support once you're at university or college (e.g. through a scholarship or bursary scheme). Also, they may get in touch with details of any events or activities they think you'll find interesting to prepare you for higher education.

The information you provide here may be used (anonymously) for monitoring purposes. This helps the university to inform and improve the support they provide to students in the future.

The information you share with UCAS is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
