Free School Meals
Children attending our school whose parents or carers receive any of these benefits are entitled to free school meals:
- child tax credits
provided your annual income as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs does not exceed £16,190. If you receive working tax credit you will not be entitled unless you’re in receipt of a four-week run-on
- guarantee element of state pension credit
- income support
- income-based jobseeker’s allowance
- income-related employment support allowance
- support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
If you think you may be entitled, please apply via North Somerset. Please be aware that you need to reconfirm your eligibility each term.
Even if your child is receiving infant free school meals, or they are a junior who does not have a school meal, please still apply. Every child who receives free school meals means extra funding for the school, and this money goes directly into extra teachers and support staff to help the pupils succeed.
You can be assured that any information regarding free school meals remains confidential, and pupils are never publicly labelled or identified as such.
