The Department for Education have not yet established their position on additional support for children to access their free school meals during lockdown. However, for the first week of this term, we have ensured that pupils in school and at home have had immediate access to Free School Meals.
Following parent feedback, all parents that are eligible for Free School Meals will be provided with a voucher. We have submitted our allocations and these should arrive over the weekend. Please ensure you check your junk/spam boxes and please let us know if you have changed email address or if you had trouble accessing these previously (as this is through an external organisation and we want to make sure our pupils have access to these). When you receive this email, you will be asked to choose a supermarket in which your weekly £15 voucher can be used in.
All pupils attending school next week, that are eligible, need to therefore bring a packed lunch from Monday. These vouchers replace pack-ups being available for collection from Monday.
Any queries, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or (01302) 700332.
