Free School Meals Entitlement
Please note the following list as a guideline for parents who may be able to apply for free school meals for their children. If you are affected by any of the following benefits/allowances, we would strongly encourage you to apply:
- Income Support (IS)
- Jobseekers Allowance Income based (JSAIB)
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (IRESA)
- Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual household income, as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs that does not exceed £16,190
- Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Universal Credit, household annual net earned income must not exceed £7,400 as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs
Parents who receive Job Seekers Allowance or Employment and Support allowance, which is contribution based, Working Tax Credit or other benefits are not eligible for free school meals.
If you are entitled to free school meals, it is very important that you register with Ealing Council at Perceval House so that the school can receive the full funding that will benefit our children. You can apply for Free School Meals using the link which you can find on our website on the Parents menu tab above, under School Meals. You can also collect a form from the School Office. This form must be completed and returned to the school office so that we can apply on your behalf.
