Free School Meals

Children in Reception, Year One and Year Two are able to have school meals at no cost to parents every day.

Your child will be able to get Free School Meals if you get any of the following benefits:

Income Support
Income based Job Seeker's Allowance
Income related Employment and Support Allowance
Guarantee element of Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit as long as you do not get a Working Tax Credit and your taxable income is less than £16,190
If you are supported under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

It's now quicker and easier to apply for Free School Meals. For the majority of claimants you will no longer need to send proof of your benefits with the application form. Suffolk County Council will check your eligibility against the Government's benefits database and, as long as you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit, the provision of Free School Meals will commence.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible due to your family's income level, please contact the School Office (in confidence) to find out more information and complete a form.
