Reopening School

Free School Meals

Posted 13/5/2020 at 11.55am.

The government has confirmed that it will not be funding FSM for any children over the May Half Term holiday (Monday 25th May to Friday 29th May).  However, in the current circumstances, school has decided to fund vouchers for this period.  They will be issued on Friday 22nd May 2020 so that we can deal with any queries and print the vouchers that need posting.

Those children who will be returning to school after the half term holiday will receive a free school meal in school and will therefore not receive any further vouchers.

Children who remain at home will not receive free school meals in school and therefore will still qualify for the vouchers which will continue to be issued via email or printed voucher until at least the first week of June.

There is an indication that we may be able to move from vouchers to food parcels which would need collecting from school.  We will continue to consider the options and will update parents as soon as we can.
