Free School Meals :With the closure of schools to most pupils, we are aware that there are some families who may find providing for their families a challenge. In particular, if your child is eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) then we are working on putting provision in place to continue to provide a lunch for your child. Although we have registered for the Government FSM Vouchers, this is proving problematic at the moment, so in the interim we will continue to distribute Coop vouchers every two weeks. PLEASE NOTE: This does NOT include Universal Free School Meals that are provided for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, but those who have registered for FSM based on income. Please contact [email protected] if you unsure if you qualify or you would not be able to collect from school due to illness etc.
Further Parent Support Available: As you are aware these very uncertain times and the situation is changing on a daily basis. Whilst we can’t predict exactly how this is going to pan out over the coming months, we wanted to take this opportunity to make you all aware that there is support available from Liz & Emma, the school Parent Support Advisors.
If you find yourself in a financially difficult position due to self-isolation or change of employment status, at any time over the coming months, please do get in touch as we will be able to help with food and toiletries. We are also available to offer emotional support, signpost to other services and give general advice and guidance.
