More Information

If you are in receipt of one of the following benefits your child/children are entitled to free school meals.


  • 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 Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.


Even if your child does not want a school lunch we would encourage you to apply, as you may be entitled to other financial and educational support such as 1:1 tuition, additional in-class and small group support.
