School Meals

Free School Meals

Free School Meals are now assessed under the new Universal Credit criteria. This replaces the 'eligible benefits' based criteria. Under the new criteria, families will be eligible for Free School Meals where their net earnings are less than £7,400.  If you think your child maybe entitled to free school meals, please click on this link to find out more  School meals - Cornwall Council

More information regarding Universal Credits can be found via this link Universal Credit Information for Families 2018

Children with a free school meal entitlement will receive free school meals until their 19th birthday or until they leave full-time education. At the end of each term Cornwall Council will check the entitlement on-line. If a child's entitlement has ceased you will receive a letter from the Council informing you of the change. If you have any queries please contact the Free School Meals Team at Cornwall Council on 01872 323298.
