Free School Meals

Newland offers a free school meals service to ensure that all of our students are able to enjoy a good quality, nutritious meal during the school day regardless of their circumstances.

Parents and carers can claim free school meals for their child or children if they are in receipt of one 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 qualify for free school meals not only will your child receive free meals, but our school will receive additional funding too.


To apply for free school meals the person who receives the qualifying benefit should complete the online application form.

Alternatively here is the free school meals application form or you can call the school to have a form posted to you.


The form can then be posted to Hull City Council’s education welfare and benefits team at the Municipal Buildings, Trippett Street, Hull, HU2 8AA. Alternatively, you can hand your form into the school, who will send it off for you.
