Apply for Free School Meals

Free school meals and extra support for your child.

If you get certain welfare benefits, you can apply for free school meals for your child. Should you qualify for free school meals and successfully complete the application, the school receives extra funding to help support their education in school and they will have a free hot meal provided every day at school. 


If you have any questions or need support in applying please contact the school office.




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

  • 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 guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re 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 - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
