Free School Meals
Free School Meals
Could your child be eligible for free school meals?
In these difficult times, we want to make sure you’re getting all the help you’re due.
A lot of people don’t claim free school meals even though they’re entitled. That’s why Derbyshire County Council has launched the Quids In Campaign, to encourage people to check if they’re eligible. You don’t need to worry about other children knowing your child gets free school meals. Only the school and catering staff will know.
You could save £400 a year for each child and your children could benefit from a good hot meal at lunchtime. The school will benefit too – they’ll get the pupil premium of £900 a year from the government for each child on free school meals.
If you get any of these benefits, you could be eligible:
- Income support
- Income based Job Seekers Allowance or an Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- The guarantee element of State Pension Credit
- Support under part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit (with an annual income of less than £16,190)
You will not be eligible if you are claiming Working Tax Credit.
You can apply by going to www.derbyshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals and fill in the form, on our website under the heading forms, or ask the school office for a form.
