Free School Meals


Many families in Sandwell could get free school meals but don't claim for them.

Your child may be entitled to free school meals if:

  • your annual income is less than £16,190; and
  • you claim Child Tax Credit.

Your child may also qualify for free school meals if you receive any of the following benefits:

  • Employment and Support Allowance (income related)
  • Income Support
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit (including Child Tax Credit)
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • support from the National Asylum Support Service.
