- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross household income of no more than £16,190)
- The Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit
- Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
- Working Tax Credit run on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
We are asking all parents to complete the details on the form which has been posted to you OR complete the online free school meals application form (please see overleaf) even if you DO NOT receive free school meals.
All information provided is in line with the data protection act and will be completely confidential. If we already have the required information (you already make a claim) and we do not hear from you, your details will automatically be entered by our admin team.
Why do we need your details?
By completing the form this will allow us to track whether or not your child is eligible for free school meals, even if you are not we will automatically be updated by the Government database if your circumstances change.
My child has sandwiches or paid dinners do I still need to fill the form in?
Yes – any eligibility for meals will mean extra funding for the school which results in extra money which can be spent on your child’s education. Any changes in your circumstance will automatically flag up throughout the time your child attends Aston Manor Academy, yet your child can still stay on sandwiches or paid meals.
We urge all parents to complete the form overleaf even if you have already applied through the old application system. If you would like to complete the online form please visit www.link2ict.org/fsm.
For more details speak to the office.
This form will only need to be completed once throughout your child’s time at Aston Manor Academy.
