Can my child get free school meals?


Although nationally, all pupils in EY and KS1 are entitled to a daily free school meal, still let us know if you think your child fulfils the FSM eligibility criteria, as the school receives extra school funding. You will be asked to complete a simple form. The school is not made aware of any details of the eligibility. Your child might be eligible for 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
