Benefit-related free school meals during school closure

Benefits-related free school meals; which entitles children of all ages to free school meals, milk and the school to receive extra funding for your child, if parents are in receipt of certain benefits.
Provision for children that are in receipt of benefit-related free school meals has been in place since the beginning of the school closure, and they have been receiving packed lunches.

(Not to be confused with, ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’ which all children in Foundation, Year 1 and 2 are entitled to automatically, when they are at school/when it’s open.)

Eligibility for benefit-related free school meals is:

“Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
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
Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)”

If you think you may be eligible to benefit-related free school meals and milk going forward, or your circumstances have changed, please make an application online via the Notts County Council website, ‘Apply for free school meals and milk’, as soon as possible.
