School Meals

Free School Meals – eligibility and applying

Families who receive the following are eligible for Free School Meals:

  • Income support
    • Income-based job seeker’s allowance (JSA)
    • Income-related employment and support allowance (ESA)
    • Guarantee element of state pension credit
    • Universal credit
    • Both income-based and contribution-based JSA/ESA if you receive the same amount for both. You should also qualify if you receive both but the Income-based amount is greater, but not if the contribution-based amount is greater
    • Families who are awarded Child Tax Credit and have an annual income, as assessed by HMRC, not in excess of £16,190 are also eligible to claim free school meals providing there is no entitlement to Working Tax Credit (unless in respect of a 4-week ‘run-on’).

The online checking system used in Warwickshire only confirms or denies your eligibility to claim free school meals: it does not give any other information. If you are currently in receipt of either Universal Credit or the 4-week run on of Working Tax Credit the system will not automatically be able to determine your eligibility, therefore you will need to send proof that you are in receipt of these benefits to the Free School Meals office once you have completed and saved your application.

When your eligibility has been confirmed and your application processed, you will be sent an email confirming eligibility. The school will also receive notification of your child’s application.

The online checking system will continuously check your eligibility status and inform you and the school of any changes.
