Free School Meals



We want to make sure that we provide your child with the best education and support we can.

Families who receive certain benefits may be entitled to free school meals for their child, and schools can claim for further funding from central government to further enhance their educational and cultural activities.

Your child might be eligible for a free school meal if you receive any of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • 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 the four weeks after you stop qualifying for working Tax Credit)
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit

If any of the above applies to you, please download a copy of the application form ensuring that all details you provide on the form are accurate and clearly written.

All completed application forms must be returned to ESAS & Free School Meals, D Block, Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, EN1 3XA, or to St Ignatius College where we can forward them on for you.
