Free School Meals

All children in EYFS, year one and year two are offered a free school meal as part of the Government’s Universal Free School Meals for infants programme. 

If you receive a benefit that gives entitlement to free school meals, please apply for this by visiting Devon County Council’s citizen portal as the school can get additional funding.

You may be eligible for free school meals if as a parent or carer you are in receipt of one of the following:

  • 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 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)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
