SCHOOL FOOD AND FREE SCHOOL MEALS

From January 2020 school dinners cost £2.50 per day.

 

All children in the Nursery, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 will be charged £2.50 per day for a school meal. We ask that these meals are paid for via ParentPay, our online payment system.

 

All children in Reception and Years 1 & 2 are eligible for a meal through the government’s Universal Infant Free Schools Meal.

Free School Meal Entitlement

 

Every day children and young people across Leeds are missing out on their free school meal. Child Friendly Leeds encourages families to check if they are eligible, as it could save you £456 per year per child.

 

Families who are entitled to free school meals are in receipt of the following benefits:

·         Income Support

·         Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance

·         Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

·         Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

·         The ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit

·         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)

 

To find out if you are eligible you can do one of the following:

 

1) Call  the Benefits Helpline on 0113 222 4404.

2) Access support at all Council One Stop Centres and local Housing Offices.
