Free School Meal information

Dear Parent

 

Re: Free School meal applications

 

Your child is eligible for a ‘universal free school meal’ if they are in Years Reception, 1 or 2. When your child reaches year 3, you will have to pay for a school meal daily if you wish them to receive one. However, your child may be eligible for a free school meal.

Free School Meals are 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 wish to make an application, please do so using the

current online application process, available from the link below.

 

https://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/info/20062/schools/684/applying_for_free_school_meals

 

I would encourage you to apply, even if you are unsure. If your child is currently receiving a universal free school meal and is in year Reception, 1 or 2, I would still encourage you to apply now.

 

If you are eligible, the school will be contacted when the application has been processed. If you are

eligible, you will be issued with a code that you can bring into the school so your child will be provided with free school meals immediately.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Hackett in the school office

 

Many thanks
