Christmas Food Voucher

The local authority have just informed me about the free school meal voucher arrangements for over the Christmas holidays.

If your child is entitled to free school meals, you will receive a £15 voucher for each week over Christmas (£30 in total). The voucher will be for Asda.

In order for the vouchers to come to school in time before the end of term, I must order them at the beginning of next week. I will be ordering vouchers for all the children who are on the free school meal list, that I will receive on Friday, from the local authority Free School Meals Team. If you are not on this list then I will not be able to provide you with a voucher.

If your circumstances have recently changed or you have never applied for free school meals then you still have time to do this. Please click on the link below and apply today.

Free School Meals

There is always some confusion that Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children get free school meals. Although the meal they have in school is free, this is because it is part of the Universal School Meal system. This is NOT the same as free school meals. Also, you must apply for each child in the family. You may have applied for free school meals for one of your children in the past - this does not mean that all your children are on the list.

Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Jenner in school if you require any further information.
