Free School Meal eligibility

Who can apply for free school meals?

 

Free School Meals can only be awarded if you or your partner are claiming either;

  • Universal Credit provided they have an annual net earned income not exceeding £7,400 (616.67 per month)
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax  Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by HMRC
  • Working Tax Credit run-on-paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax

If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please complete the online form on www.gov.uk. Go to ‘schools and education’ then ‘apply for free school meals’. Complete and submit the online form. The necessary checks will then be made and you will be contacted to confirm your eligibility.  

 

If you are eligible, the school will be contacted and you will receive a free school meal voucher for your child / ren up to the value of £11.50 per week per child (£2.30 per day) to spend in a supermarket of your choice. Even if you are not certain whether you may be eligible, I would impress upon you to complete the form anyway then your eligibility can be determined.

 

Please note that this also applies to children in years Reception, 1 and 2 who already receive meals free of charge via ‘universal free school meals’. Even though, during this time, parents of pupils who receive universal free school meals are not eligible to receive a voucher, if the above criteria applies to you (ie. Benefits received etc) you may be eligible for free school meals and thus receive a voucher.

 

If you have any queries or questions, please email Mrs Hackett on office@wolverleysebright.worcs.sch.uk. Many thanks
