Free School Meals

Are you entitled to claim for free school meals? Even though your child may already receive free school meals because they are in KS1, you should still register for free school meals if:

Your family income is less than £16,000

You are on income support

You are receiving job seekers allowance

You are receiving child tax credit and not working tax credit and do not exceed £16,000

You are receiving support from immigration and asylum seekers allowance.

You can easily check with West Berkshire Council by phoning 01635 42400 and asking about free school meals. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, national insurance number, your child’s/children’s names, date of birth, the school they attend and their year group.

By registering for free school meals the school will be able to access money to help support your child’s learning.
