School Dinners and Free School Meals

 

Have you seen this term's menu?

 

Our dinner menu has been designed using a wide variety of meal options to reflect the cultural diversity of our school. Our  kitchen staff prepare meals to an impressively high standard; using fresh herbs and raw ingredients.

 

All our meat and poultry is certified 'halal' and no pork is prepared or served on the premises. We also promote and encourage healthy eating, by including unlimited fruit and vegetables to each child with their meal.

 

We offer our pupils a choice of a meat, fish or vegetable based main dish, with a pudding suitable for all.

 

Our pupils really enjoy our menus and we are sure your child will too.

Free School Meals and Healthy Start

 

What is it?

Your children could get free school meals if you get an income-based benefit (for example Income Support), or Child Tax Credit only. You can sometimes qualify if you get Working Tax Credit as well. But it depends on the income your tax credits have been worked out on, and where you live in the UK.

 

Free school meals - can I get it?

Free school meals are available to children in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of,one or more of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of  your most recent assessment periods)
  • Income Support
  • Income - based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income - related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of 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 four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

 

In addition, the following pupils will be protected against losing their free school meals as follows:

From 1 April 2018, all existing free school meals claimants will continue to receive free school meals whilst Universal Credit is rolled out. This will apply even if their earnings rise above the new threshold during that time.

 

In addition, any child gaining eligibility for free school meals after 1 April 2018 will be protected against losing free school meals during the Universal Credit rollout period.

 

Once Universal Credit is fully rolled out, any existing claimants that no longer meet the eligibility criteria at that point (because they are earning above the threshold or are no longer a recipient of Universal Credit) will continue to receive free school meals until the end of their current phase of education (i.e . primary or secondary). The Universal Credit rollout is currently expected to complete in March 2022.

 

A child is only eligible to receive a free school meal when a claim for the meal has been made on their behalf, and their eligibility has been verified by the school where they are enrolled or by the local authority.

Healthy Start

With Healthy Start you can get:

  • Coupons to exchange for free vitamins
  • Weekly vouchers to buy milk, fresh or plain frozen fruit and vegetables, or infant formula milk

 

Healthy Start - can I get it?

If you're on certain benefits, or you get Child Tax Credit and are on a low income, you could qualify. You'll need to be at least 10 weeks pregnant, or have a child under four.

If you are pregnant and under the age of 18, you will automatically qualify whether or not you get other benefits or Child Tax Credit.

You won't qualify if you get Working Tax Credit, unless it's just the four week extension of your payments - often called a 'run-on'. You may get a run-on after you stopped qualifying for Working Tax Credit - for example if you’ve stopped work or reduced your hours.

You don't have to get Child Benefit to qualify for Healthy Start.
