Dear Parent/Carer
FREE SCHOOL MEALS / FUNDED BUS PASSES
I am writing to encourage parents/carers of all our pupils who are entitled to free meals, to claim them.

 

  • Your child would be entitled to Free School Meals if you are receiving any of the following benefits:-
  •  Income Support
  •  Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  •  Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  •  Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  •  The guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  •  Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit (WTC) and have an annual
    gross income of no more than £16,190) as assessed by HRMC
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  •  Universal Credit – conditions apply; see Universal Credit Information on DCC website

 

 

I must point out that it is your responsibility to tell us of any change in circumstances which would affect your
child’s entitlement to free school meals
