Free School Meals

Do you qualify?

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 are 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


Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (ie. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get Free School Meals.

Children under the compulsory school age who are in full-time education may also be able to get Free School Meals.
