Is your child entitled to Free School Meals? 

If so, the school will also benefit by receiving extra funding towards resources to help enhance your child’s education. 

Free school meals are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits:

    • Income Support
    • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
    • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
    • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
    • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
    • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

Entitlement to free school meals is kept as confidential as possible.  The free school meal will remain in place for as long as your child continues to attend an East Riding of Yorkshire school and you continue to be entitled to one of the above qualifying benefits. Remember –  you must contact East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s benefit section if your circumstances change and you are no longer in receipt of one of the listed benefits.
