Re: Coronavirus update – Free School Meal Vouchers
I hope that you and your families are well and staying safe.
I know that you will be aware of the government’s recent announcement regarding the Free School Meal voucher scheme for pupils whose parents are entitled to certain benefits.
Unfortunately we, along with many other schools, have not been able to register for the scheme as yet but we hope to have the scheme operating after the Easter break. Government guidance is that schools, ‘should check which pupils are eligible and currently in receipt of benefits-related free school meals’ before ordering the vouchers.
Therefore please ensure that you have applied for free school meals if you believe that you are eligible.
Details of how to collect and redeem the vouchers will be given after the Easter holiday however if you would like further information then please check online at
Please also note that the admin staff are working with the information that is available to them so I would ask that you demonstrate patience and understanding.
