You may be eligible for the ‘Free School Meals’ scheme which entitles your child to free school lunches throughout their primary and secondary education (ages 5 to 16 years old)

Your child will also be eligible for free ‘Holiday activities’ (HAF) operating during the Easter, Summer & Christmas school holidays. 

Free school meals are available to parents who are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • 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 guarantee 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 four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

Please note that under the government ‘universal’ infant free school meals, all children automatically receive free lunches up to Year 2.
