Free School Meals Update

Please find details about the offering of Free School Meals – please note this letter is only relevant if your child is eligible for pupil premium and receives Free School Meals:

From Friday 17th April, the Council’s voucher scheme for parents whose children are eligible for Free School Meals will be discontinued. Instead, there will be a national scheme to provide supermarket vouchers from 20th April onwards, which will operate during term time only. The voucher will have a value of £15 per week and can be used at a range of supermarkets. We will send an ‘eCode’ directly to the email address of any parent or carers of pupils eligible for Free School Meals which will enable you to choose an eGift card from the supermarket of your choice.
