Date: 23rd Oct 2020 @ 2:49pm

 

Manchester City Council has agreed today to provide funding for all children from Nursery class to Year 11 who are eligible for a benefits related free school meal over the October half term break next week.

This will be for families that receive Free School Meals due to low income. This does not include children who get a free school meal through the universal scheme.  

FSM eligibility

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

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part !V of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on  - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

 

To claim for this scheme, click on the link below and follow the steps on the Manchester City Council Website.

Free School Meals, by Mrs Maguire

Please don’t forget to make a claim for Free School Meals for your child or children if you think you are eligible.

We want to make sure every child that is eligible has made a claim - especially during these unprecedented Covid-19 times. It is important we have an accurate record in case of any further disruption like we experienced in March or if any changes are made to the current free school meal scheme.  If a claim is made now this will ensure your child will receive a meal in such an event.

To claim takes a few minutes and you normally receive an instant decision. You can find the link to make a claim on the school website on the School Meal page;

St Ambrose School Meal Page

To complete an application, you will need to provide:

  • Your own name and date of birth
  • Contact details
  • National Insurance Number or National Asylum Seekers Number
  • Child's name and date of birth
  • School your child is attending/will attend.
