Free School Meals
We have had lots of messages about FSM over the last few weeks and vouchers have been issued.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
Income Support income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance income-related Employment and Support Allowance support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 the guaranteed element of Pension Credit Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190) Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
If you think your child may be entitled but you have not yet applied, you can fill in the form here https://www.rotherham.gov.uk/bene…/apply-free-school-meals/1
We can only issue the FSM vouchers to children who are identified as eligible by the Local Authority.
