Is your child entitled to income related free school meals?

The October School Census determines Pupil Premium funding allocations for schools. Children who are recorded as being eligible for free school meals on the October Census will be allocated Pupil Premium funding for our school.

A child is not automatically eligible for FSM if an older sibling is already eligible: each child has to be checked individually.

Your child could be entitled to receive free school meals if you are in receipt of any of the following benefits -

  • Universal Credit - your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
  • 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 state Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

If you think that your child is eligible for free school meals, please apply online as soon as possible so that they are recorded on the October Census. Please note that this refers to income related free school meals and not Universal Infant Free School Meals.
