Free School Meal Information
As you will be aware, the national voucher scheme for children entitled to free school meals is now up and running. If you are entitled to benefit related free school meals, you will get a voucher emailed directly to you for £15 per child per week.
If your situation has now changed you may be entitled to benefit related free school meals. Your joint family income needs to be less than £16,190 and you need to be in receipt of one of the following benefits (this includes those who have parental rights for the child/children named)
☐ Universal Credit, provided they have an annual net earned income not exceeding £7,400
☐ Income Support
☐ Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
☐ Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
☐ Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
☐ The guarantee element of Pension Credit
☐ Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with 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
If you think this applies to you, please email the school email@example.com with your full name, date of birth and National Insurance Number and the name of your children. We will then ask Barnet to carry out an eligibility check – please be advised that this can take up to 6 weeks.
With best wishes
