Because of the following which is taken from Section 201 of the Education Act 2002.

[i:b035671ab1]A person is within this subsection if-

(a) his parent is-
(i) in receipt of income support,
(ii) in receipt of an income-based jobseeker’s allowance (payable under the Jobseekers Act 1995 (c. 18)),
(iii) in receipt of support provided under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (c. 33), or
(iv) in receipt of any other benefit or allowance, or entitled to any tax credit under the Tax Credits Act 2002 (c. 21) or element of such a tax credit, prescribed for the purposes of this paragraph, in such circumstances as may be so prescribed, [/i:b035671ab1]

I would say the criteria is whether they get CTC and that in most cases they will, however does anyone know if an element of TC has been prescribed and in such circs as prescribed, because if not my children qualify !!!!!!!!
