Free school meal provision
Free School Meals
A reminder that Free School Meal provision will be changing to a voucher scheme from this Monday 6th, April and will be extended to cover what would have been the two week school Easter holiday period.
The new voucher scheme will replace the grab bag packed lunches which have been delivered to schools since Monday 23rd March.
Parents and carers of children currently receiving Free School Meals will be sent a downloadable voucher to the value of £40 for the benefit of their eligible child/children which can be spent in one of the following supermarkets;
- Marks & Spencer
Arrangements for Free School Meals following the Easter break will be communicated in due course.
The Council has successfully delivered 45,000 grab bags children to collect and takeaway to eat off site however the new scheme will assist measures in reducing social contact, as announced by UK Government.
Families who are eligible will receive a letter with details of the voucher directly from the Council, in the next few days.
