Children Entitled to Free School Meals

The Government will be issuing weekly shopping vouchers to families who are entitled to free school meals from April 20th. 


If you receive one of the following benefits below, you may be eligible for Free School Meals Vouchers:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit (providing you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit, and your annual income is below £16,190)
  • Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • If you are supported by NASS under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. You must provide your NASS number.


This is not the same as universal free school meals which is for pupils in reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  The vouchers are only for families who receive some type of benefit, as mentioned above.
