Universal Free School Meals

From September 2014, all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals.  This provision is known as ‘Universal Free School Meals’.

 

Is your child eligible for free school meals in addition to the UFSM Programme?

In addition to the Universal Free School Meals programme, In England, children are eligible to receive free school meals (FSM) if their parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seekers’ Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guaranteed element of  State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.

 

Pupils who are eligible to receive free school meals outside the Universal Free School Meals Programme receive additional funding to be spent in school on their provision.

Therefore, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and receiving Universal Free School Meals, if your child is eligible to receive free school meals because you meet any of the criteria above it is important that you let us know as we can claim additional funding for your child.
