If you are having financial difficulties, maybe you have lost your job or just finding things really tight, it can get harder during the school holidays when children are at home. Maybe they are entitled to free school meals during term time, but what can you do during school holidays?
1st April 2021
You may be aware that the Government have again confirmed that they will fund free school meals over the Easter period by providing shopping vouchers for children and families who are currently entitled to Free School Meals.
Children entitled to means tested benefits (not Working tax credits) will be issued with a £15 voucher for each week of the holidays) via email/text message. You will soon receive a message asking you to register and select the supermarket you would like a voucher for. Once you have chosen a supermarket you CAN NOT swap.
You will receive a £15 voucher for each child on:
Monday 5th April 2021
Monday 12th April
You will be able to select which supermarket you want to spend you vouchers in and these include:
If you do not want to participate and receive a voucher, please ignore the email/text – and your child’s allocation will be re-distributed to other families.
Please follow the instructions in the email/text you receive to claim your vouchers. Please note that if you have not selected your supermarket by Monday 19th April you will no longer be eligible to claim the vouchers.
Vouchers will be provided to you via email/text ONLY. For more information please visit the school website
On behalf of myself, all of the staff and the School Governing Body, we wish you a very happy, safe and healthy Easter!
