Free School Meals and Milk

If your child is registered for Free School Meals and Milk the school will be able to access further funding (Pupil Premium) to support your child’s learning. Children can also access subsidies, including support for school trips and before/after school care.


Please check to see if your child is eligible for Free School Meals and Milk– which is likely if you receive one of the following benefits:


  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC)) that does not exceed £16,190

  • Income Support

  • income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)

  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for four weeks after the person stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit


If you think you qualify for free school meals and milk - even if your child is eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals - please contact the Academy office with your NI number and date of birth.  We can then run a check for you and let you know straight away.
