15th December 2020
With the Christmas holidays fast approaching I wanted to write to you to spread a little festive cheer. You may be aware that the Government have again confirmed that they will fund free school meals over the Christmas period by providing shopping vouchers for children and families who are currently entitled to Free School Meals.
We have consulted with the School Governing Body who support our wish to provide vouchers for ALL of our children (from reception to year 6).
I am sure you will agree that this is a very welcome gesture at a time when many of our families have had a very challenging year, in more ways than one.
Later this week, every child will be issued with a £30 voucher (£15 for each week of the holidays) via email/text message. Parents 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.
This will be a one-off voucher, and will be available to ALL children from Reception to Year 6 who attend Ingram Road Primary school.
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 Midnight on Friday 18th December you will no longer be eligible to claim the voucher.
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 Christmas!
Miss S Millard, Headteacher
Mrs D Porter, Chair of Governors
