Free School Meals

It is important for children to have a good nutritious meal at lunch time.

 

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

 

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

 

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

 

Your child may also get free school meals if you get any of these benefits and your child is both:
