 Free School Meals

 

The school is has been trying to arrange evouchers for all children who are entitled to Free School Meals Provision through the government scheme; this will include provision of free school meals during the Easter holiday period.  We are awaiting our code from the government in order that we are able to complete this process.  When we have received this code we will complete the process immediately to ensure that you receive your code for evouchers as quickly as possible. 

 

We apologise for the delay, however, we are unable to proceed any further until we have received the appropriate information from the government.

 

We hope you are keeping well during this challenging period.

 The statement below is taken from: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance-for-schools

 

What about infants that receive a free meal under Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)?

Government advice to schools is: We think that it is right that schools concentrate their effort and resources on those that are eligible for benefits-related free school meals. There is no requirement to continue to provide Universal Infant Free School Meals to pupils in Reception, Year 1, or Year 2 who are unable to attend school. Children in those year groups who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals will be supported.
