CHANGES TO FSM SCHEME FROM APRIL 20th ONWARDS
Please note this letter is only relevant if your child is a pupil premium child and receives Free School Meals. This letter does not apply to families of children in Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y2 who get a free lunch everyday a part of the Universal Free School Meal entitlement.
From Friday 17th April, the Council’s voucher scheme for parents whose children 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 weekly 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. Please inform school of your correct email address.
If you do not have access to an email account, please could you contact us as soon as possible, as we will be able to print and post the eGift card to any parent unable to access this service online.
I have attached a document which provides further information for parents and carers about the scheme. If you have any questions about the scheme or feel as though you need any other support at this difficult time, please do not hesitate to school.
