Are you entitled to Free School Meals or Pupil Premium?

 

My child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2

All children in reception, year 1 or year 2 are automatically entitled to free school meals under the Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. 

Pupil Premium - extra support for your child

You can apply for the Pupil Premium which provides your child's school with additional funding to support them. If you are in receipt of any of the below benefits please apply. 

My child in in Year 3 or above

If you are in receipt of any of the following, your child may be eligible for free school meals.

• Income Support

• Income based Job Seekers Allowance

• Income related Employment and Support Allowance

• Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

• Child Tax Credit, with no element of Working Tax Credit, and a household income below £16,190 (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs)

• Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit

• Universal Credit

If a child resides in a local authority care home they will not qualify for free school meals. This is because government funding has already been allocated to fund their meals. 

How do I apply?
