Free School Meal Vouchers
The Government's National Voucher Scheme for children that are eligible for benefits-related free school meals has been operational for a number of weeks.
We have noticed that many voucher codes that have been emailed to parents are yet to be claimed. These codes have an expiry date and need to be redeemed against a supermarket to be used. Please see the guide below for step-by-step instructions.
Who can get free school meals?
You can claim free school meals for your children if you are in receipt of any of these:
Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
Child Tax Credit but not Working Tax Credit and the household income is not more than £16,190. Please note: anyone receiving Working Tax Credit, or if you have a partner and they receive it, regardless of Income, you will not qualify the Guarantee element of State Pension Credit (from 30th April 2005)
Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
