Free School Meals
Is my child entitled to free school meals?
Any child attending a North Somerset school whose parents or carers receive one or more of these benefits is entitled to receive free meals at school:
- child tax credit, provided your annual income as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs does not exceed £16,190. If you receive working tax credit you will not be entitled unless you're in receipt of a four-week
- guarantee element of state pension credit
- income support
- income-based job seekers allowance
- income-related employment support allowance
- support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
How do I apply for free school meals?
North Somerset Local Authority have replaced the old free school meal paper application forms with a new online checker. Please click here to go to the North Somerset Free School Meals page.
Parents are able to apply online at home, and in school and get an instant result. The system will generate a letter that parents can print off and give to schools to show eligibility. Where parents do not have printers, they can forward on the email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or showing it to school staff on their smart phone.
Parents will need to reapply every school holiday (so 6 times per year) and eligibility will last for the whole school term.
Each child will need to be checked individually as the online checker creates a system code for each child.
If parents give schools their permission, schools can check eligibility on their behalf. In order to do this, the school would require the parent’s National Insurance number and date of birth.
Schools will be sent an email at the beginning of each term detailing who has applied. Anyone who applies mid-term will be able to show schools their eligibility letter. Eligibility starts from the date on the letter, and stops at the end of that term.
The online checker can be found at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/fsm.
