A large number of students at Greenacre Academy benefit from free school meals. Where they are entitled to this, a daily credit is added to their account.
Your son may be entitled to a free school meal if you receive either:
- Employment and Support Allowance (income-related)
- Income Support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance (income-based)
- The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
You will not be entitled to Free School Meals if you receive any element of Working Tax Credit or if your annual household income (as assessed by HMRC) is greater than £ 16,190. Proof of your benefit will not need to be provided at this stage; however, you will be informed if any proof of benefit is required at a later date.
