Newtown High School

Free School Meals

To get free meals in Powys schools, the parents/carers must get one of the following:

  1. Income Support
  2. Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based)
  3. If you are an Asylum Seeker getting support under the Immigration and Asylum Act.
  4. State Pension Guaranteed Credit
  5. Employment and Support Allowance - Income based
  6. Child Tax Credit - as long as you are not getting an amount for childcare paid with your CTC, or getting Working Tax Credit. HM Revenue & Customs must also have worked out your household income as £16,190 a year or less.
  7. Universal Credit - as long as your annual net earnings are £7400 or less

You can also get free school meals if you are entitled to a Working Tax Credit 'run-on' payment for four weeks after stopping work or reducing working hours to under 16 hours a week.

You will also be making a difference to the amount of additional money Newtown High School will receive for educating your child and others. This is because the school receives its Pupil Deprivation Grant based on our Free School Meals Uptake.
