Free School Meals

Families may be entitled to claim for Free School Meals. There is no differentiation using the cashless system for pupils who are in receipt of Free School Meals. We would welcome your application should you meet the following criteria:

  • You receive Income Support or Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based).
  • You receive a Child Tax Credit but do not receive Working Tax Credit and your gross income does not exceed the annual limit.

If you apply for Housing or Council Tax Benefit and are in receipt of any of the above, your claim will automatically be processed.

Even if you do not qualify for Housing/Council Tax Benefit, you can still claim as long as you receive the qualifying income. Application forms may be obtained either from the school or from Benefits section on Rotherham’s website: www.rotherham.gov.uk.

Please note proof of income/benefits must be provided when making a claim.

Please contact the Management Accountant or the Finance Manager at the school, or the Benefits section at Rotherham Borough Council should you require further information.
