Free School Meals

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

  • Income Support 
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance 
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit 
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross in-come 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
  • Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (i.e. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.
