Schools get extra funding, known as the ‘Pupil Premium’, for every child registered as eligible for a free school meal if their parents are receiving benefits.

Schools use this money for activities such as art therapy, booster classes, educational trips, and after-school clubs.

To qualify, your child must be in school and you must be receiving one of the following benefits:

Income support
Income based Job Seekers Allowance
NASS support
Guarantee element of State Pension
Child Tax Credit, provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190
Working Tax Credit for the four weeks after employment ends
Universal Credit, provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400

If this applies to you but your child isn’t registered for free school meals, complete a form and return it to your child school.

Download the form and apply for Free School Meals on Wokingham Borough Council’s website.
