Changes to Free School Meals Eligibility Under Universal Credit

The Government is simplifying the welfare system by gradually replacing a number of income-related benefits with Universal Credit. This means that a number of the legacy benefits that previously entitled families to free school meals are being phased out and will cease to exist. The Government has now made amendments to the eligibility criteria for free school meals to reflect the introduction of Universal Credit.

From 01 April 2018 new applicants for free school meals who are in receipt of Universal Credit must have an equivalent annual net earned income of no more than £7,400 in order to be eligible for free school meals

If you need any further information, please speak to a member of the school’s office staff or the Local authority. You can also visit the free school meal website: https://www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals
