Free School Meals

Applying for free school meals is straightforward, confidential and online and can save you approximately £400 a year. Your child’s lunch account is automatically and confidentially credited with £2.36 each day (enough for a meal deal). Parents can top up this amount with extra cash as usual, if they wish. The money cannot be carried over, so starts afresh each day.

In addition, Hope Valley College receives an extra £1,300 per student who receives free school meals. This helps us to provide more help and support, e.g. subsidised or free enrichment activities, such as trips or guitar lessons.

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you receive any of the following:

  • Income support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • The Guarantee element of the State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of no more than £16,190)
  • Universal Credit
