Free School Meals

Is My Child Eligible for Free School Meals?

Children whose parents are in receipt of the following are entitled to free school meals:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State 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.

Children who receive any of the above benefits in their own right (i.e. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.

How do I apply for Free School Meals?

Applications are made via Devon County Council. For more information or for assistance, please contact them at freeschoolmeals@devon.gov.uk or on the Education Helpline on 0345 155 1019.
