Registering for free meals could raise an extra £900 of funding for the school to provide valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities.
Families who receive certain benefits may be eligible for free school meals. Your child is eligible for free school meals if you’re in receipt of one of the following benefits:

- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The guarantee element of Pension Credit

- Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
Please complete the below form if you think you might be eligible because:
- You are eligible for Free School Meals (based on the benefits listed above)
- One or more parents are in the Armed forces
- You adopted your child
- The child in your care is on a residence or special guardianship order
