Free School Meal Vouchers

Dear Parents and Carers,


We hope that you and your families are all keeping well and enjoying the lovely sunny weather.


You may have seen on the news that the Government has announced it will continue to provide free school meals for children who are entitled to receive them during the Easter holidays.  This will take the form of supermarket vouchers which will be emailed or posted to you to cover the holiday period.  


Please be reassured that we are working hard to get these to you as soon as we can.  Unfortunately the national system which schools have to use to access the vouchers and send them out is experiencing a few glitches and working quite slowly at the moment so there may be a little delay.  We will continue to keep trying to get them to you quickly.


Please note that this only applies to children at our school who are eligible for free school meals.  It does not apply to children who benefit from universal free school meals, which is the entitlement for all children in KS1 who are able to have a free lunch at school.


Yours sincerely,


Nicola Dawson
