Eligibility for Free School Meals

We have a number of students who are currently in receipt of free school meals, but have recently become aware that there are a number of students who received them in primary school but have not made an application to receive them in Ysgol Dinas Brân.

If you receive any of the following, your son/daughter is eligible to receive free school meals.

  • Income Support
  • Job Seekers Allowance; Income Based
  • Employment and Support Allowance; Income Related Pension Credit; Guaranteed Credit
  • Child tax credit (but not working tax credit)
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

We strive to ensure that no stigma is attached to our students who receive free school meals, and our canteen payment system is a fingerpad or card system which ensures privacy for all of our students.

We also make good use of the Pupil Deprivation Grant to support our free school meals students, and can offer financial support towards uniform, equipment, visits etc.

A claim form is available on the Denbighshire website www.denbighshire.gov.uk if you believe that your son/daughter is eligible for free school meals. Please do not hesitate to contact Mr Froggett if you require any other information or any support with your application.
