Free School Meals


FSM Poster

Could your child be entitled to free school meals? If you are on the following benefits you will be able to claim a meal for your children:

  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance or an Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit Only (with a family income of less than £16,190)
  • National Asylum Seekers Support
  • Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit
  • Employment and Support Allowance

You can’t get free school meals if you are claiming Working Tax Credit.

It’s easy to apply at or ask the school office for a form. Your child’s school will get a payment from the Government of £900 per year.
