Free School Meals

At Ormiston Meridian Academy, we believe it is important for students to have a nutritious meal at lunch time. If your circumstances have changed in these difficult times then you may be entitled to ‘Free School Meals’.

More than 12,000 children in Stoke on Trent already receive a free school meal. This saves their families around £400 a year and also gives additional funding to their school.

Your child may be able to get ‘Free School Meals’ if you receive any of the following:

  • Income Support or income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided your not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more that £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

If you meet any of the above criteria and you have not registered your child for ‘Free School Meals’, then you can do so by completing the form available from reception.

If you require assistance in completing the form, please contact the academy to arrange an appointment; our staff are here to help you.
