Free school meals
Today (31.03.2020), school has received information regarding providing our free school meals children with provision whilst the schools are closed; this will apply to term time only.
From the onset of school closure – we actively (alongside our school meals providers) provided daily packed lunches to our children whose parents have requested our support – and this has proved to be a successful service with excellent feedback. School will also be providing a food parcel this Friday to parents who again have contacted us requesting our support for over the Easter period.
The decision to provide “actual food” each day ensures our children receive daily fresh food which our catering team are happy to provide.
In order to go ahead with the e-voucher scheme, families will need access to the internet and choose which shop they would like to redeem their vouchers at. Our concern is as to whether our local shop will be able to provide sufficient provisions for all our free school meals families.
Parents of children who are entitled to benefit related free school meals will be contacted during the Easter period to decide which option they would prefer going forwards.
