Is your Child Entitled to Free School Meals?

We encourage all parents/carers to check if their child is entitled to free school meals. Being registered for free school meals benefits the student and the school.

Children qualify for free school meals if their parents or guardians are asylum seekers or if they receive one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income –based Jobseeker’s allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support allowance
  • The guaranteed part of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit – as long as parents are not getting Working Tax Credit (income of £16,190 or less a year)
  • Universal Credit

To claim free school meals for your child visit the Manchester City Council website.
