Free School Meals

 

Is your child eligible for Free School Meals?

 

Your child will be able to get free school meals if you receive any of the following benefits:

 

  • Income Support

  • Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance

  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

  • Child Tax Credit, as long as you do not get a Working Tax Credit  and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenues & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190

  • If you are supported under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

 

To check if your child is eligible, simply call 01284 758883 or apply online at

https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/children-families-and-learning/schools/school-meals-transport-travel-uniforms-and-trips/apply-for-free-school-meals/

 

 

Any parents of children who are in receipt of any of above benefits or who believe they are eligible for a free school meal should apply whichever year group they are in as this will entitle you to 1/3 OFF the cost of school trips.

 

YOU SHOULD STILL APPLY EVEN IF YOUR CHILD RECEIVES A FREE MEAL THROUGH THE UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEALS GOVERNMENT SCHEME AS THE SCHOOL RECEIVES EXTRA FUNDING FOR THESE CHILDREN.
