Free School Meal Information

Dear Parent/Carers,


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   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

Sarah Deale
