Free School Meals


Could your child be eligible for Free School Meals?

In these difficult financial times, we want to make sure you are getting all the help that you are due.

Many people do not claim Free School Meals even though they are entitled. That is why Derbyshire County Council has launched Quid’s in campaign, to encourage people to check if they are eligible. You do not need to worry about other children knowing your child gets Free School Meals. Only the school and catering staff will know.

You could save £400 a year for each child and your children could benefit from a good hot meal at lunchtime. The school will benefit too - they will get the Pupil Premium of £900 a year from the government for each child on Free School Meals.

If you get any of these benefits, you could be eligible:

  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance or an Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • The guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit (with an annual income of less than £16,190)

You will not be eligible if you are claiming Working Tax Credit.

To apply, go to and fill in the form. Alternatively, you can ask the school office for a form.
