Free School Meals

September 2, 2019

Is your child eligible to free school meals?


Once your child enters Year 3 they are no longer eligible to receive free meals under the government's Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) programme. 


Either you will have to provide a packed lunch or you will have to pay for a school meal - currently priced at £2.35 per day.


If you or your partner are in receipt of qualifying benefits you could be entitled to Free School Meals - not only is this a potential annual saving of £446.50 to you, but it could also mean an additional annual payment to school of £1,300 to improve education and assist vulnerable pupils.


Free school meals, pupil premium and early years pupil premium (EYPP)


What are the qualifying benefits?


You will be entitled to apply for free school meals and/or pupil premium for your child if you or your partner receive one or more of the following benefits: 

  • Income Support 

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance 

  • The guaranteed part of State Pension Credit 

  • Support under part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 

  • Child Tax Credit (providing you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by the Inland Revenue) 

  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit) 

  • Universal Credit.
