Free School Meals
Did you know that your child could qualify for free school meals? That means no bills but delicious, healthy meals for your children.
School meals will give your child a real appetite for learning and help them to achieve their full potential. There is nothing healthier for your child and your family’s budget than free school meals. As someone else is preparing the meals for your child, it saves you having to worry about the effort and expense of making packed lunches every day.
Your child may be entitled to receive free school meals if you are entitled to receive one or more of the following:
- Income Support (IS);
- Income Based Jobseekers Allowance (IBJSA);
- An income-related employment and support allowance
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999; or
- Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190.
Note: Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after their employment ceases, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school lunches.
- The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit.
Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also eligible to receive free school meals.
