Free School Meals

Can my children have Free School Meals?
Yes, if you get Income Support or Jobseeker's Allowance (income based), Income related Employment and Support Allowance and you receive Child Tax Credit but you are not entitled to a Working Tax Credit and your annual income does not exceed £16,190.00 or support under part VI of the Immigration Asylum Act 1999, or guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit, your children will be able to have free school meals. Free school meals cannot be granted on a discretionary basis. If you ring 01772 531809 and give your name, date of birth and national insurance number they will be able to tell you over the phone if you are eligible.
