From September 2021, students who are eligible for Free School Meals will be entitled to a free school blazer and tie.
Changes to free school meal eligibility under Universal Credit
The eligibility criteria for free school meals have changed. Read below to see how the changes might affect you.
What are the new eligibility criteria?
Children are entitled to receive free school meals if they or their parents or guardians receive any of the benefits below:
I don’t currently claim free school meals – what does this mean for me?
If you think you might be eligible for free school meals, submit a claim to Archbishop Sentamu Academy for the attention of Mrs Helen Dowds. The information you provide will be used to check if you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit an, if you are on Universal Credit, that your earnings do not exceed the threshold. If you claim Universal Credit, your earnings will be assessed from up to three of your last Universal Credit assessment periods.
If you are eligible, your school will be notified. Your child will receive free school meals and the school will receive extra funding.
I am currently claiming free school meals – what does this mean for me?
Most people won’t be affected by the new criteria. If you’re currently claiming free school meals, but don’t meet the new criteria, your child will continue to receive free school meals until the end of the Universal Credit rollout period. This will apply even if your earnings rise above the new threshold or if you stop being entitled to Universal Credit. The rollout period is currently scheduled to end in March 2022.
Once Universal Credit is fully rolled out, your child will keep their free school meal until the end of their current phase of education, i.e. primary or secondary.
Where can I get more information?
If you need further information, please speak to a member of school staff or the local authority.
