Free School Meals

Can I apply for free school meals?

You can apply for free school meals if you receive:

  • Income Support 
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance 
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance 
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit 
  • the ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit 
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit) 
  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income threshold of less than £7,400

If you are an Asylum Seeker, you will need to apply directly to the school or contact the Access Team.

School meals are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – why do I still need to apply?

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals, but if you receive one of the benefits from the list above you may also get help with:

  • the cost of residential school trips  
  • travel costs to school 
  • school uniform costs 
  • music lessons at school 

For each child registered for free school meals, primary schools receive a pupil premium of £1,455. This money is to help your child achieve their best at school.
