Free School Meals

New Online Self Checking Service

Are you eligible to register your child for free school meals?

If you are eligible to register your child for free school meals you could save up to 350 a year and take advantage of the school meal service which is a good way to make sure that your child eats well at lunchtime.

It is very easy to apply

    • Contact the school on 01782 615636 and ask to speak to the office for a form
  • OR

    The process is discretely dealt with, no one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

    You can claim free school meals for your child if you receive any 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 Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
    • 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, regardless of their level of income, does not qualify).

    To check your eligibility go to the online self checking service here.

    For every child eligible for free school meals and registered with us, St John Fisher Catholic College should receive up to 600 additional funding called Pupil Premium which could help us to provide additional resources in school.
