Free School Meals

Are you applicable for Free School Meals?

If you are in receipt of any of the following, your child may be eligible for free school meals. 

  • Income Support 
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance 
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, with no element of Working Tax Credit, and a household income below £16,190   (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) 
  • Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit 

If a child resides in a local authority care home they will not qualify for free school meals. This is because government funding has already been allocated to fund their meals. A child must reside with the applicant to receive free school meals. 

If any of the above applies to you, please apply directly here:
