It's recently been reported that students receiving free school meals are less likely to score well on GCSE exams.
An Ofsted report published this month looked at the attainment of pupils eligible for free school meals at GCSE level, between 2012 and 2013.

This figure dropped by 7.3 per cent in 2013 to 24.6 per cent, with just three local authorities faring worse – South Gloucestershire, Portsmouth and Barnsley.
