Is Your Child Entitled To Free School Meals?

You can register your child for Free School Meals if you get any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have annual income (assessed by HM Revenue & Customers) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Children who receive Income Support or Income Based Job Seekers Allowance in their own right are also entitled to receive Free School Meals
