Online Free School Meal Checker

As you may be aware there have been funding cuts to schools and academies recently.

At St Barnabas we seek to provide the very best education for all of our children and are always seeking ways to improve. Children who are entitled to free school meals (not including universal free school meals in Reception Years 1 & 2) bring in an additional revenue source for the school which we use to provide additional learning support, free after school clubs and subsidised breakfast club to name but a few.

We are therefore very keen to have as many children registered as possible.  Please click on the link below to check you eligibility.

Eligibility is based on one of the following benefits :

  • 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 with an annual gross income into the household that is no more than £16,190, provided you are not entitled to working tax credit. If you are entitled to any part of working tax credit there is no eligibility with the exception of working tax run-on as shown below
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

I agree that you will use the information provided to process my claim for free school meals and will contact other sources as allowed by law to verify my initial, and ongoing, entitlement.

I agree that the information may be used to ensure accuracy of records across the local authority and the check against fraud.

I agree that you can inform the school(s) attended by my child of their initial and ongoing entitlement to free school meals.

You may be aware of our Privacy Policy.

To complete an application you will need to provide:

  • Your own name and date of birth
  • Contact details
  • National Insurance Number or National Asylum Seekers Number
  • Child's name and date of birth
