Until the free school meal voucher scheme is up and running, current arrangements for ordering and collecting packed lunches will remain in place. Please see the attached notice for further details.
We are still waiting for confirmation of when and how the free school meal voucher scheme is going to be rolled out by the government, but we do know that we will require a current email address and an up to date mobile number for those families it applies to.
If your child is eligible for free school meals, and we do not have your current mobile number and email address, could you please follow the instructions below, so our management system is ready to go when the vouchers are released. It is important that we know who you are when you email your details, so please remember to include all of the information required (please see instructions).
If you do not have an email address or mobile number, please contact the school between 9.00am and 12.30pm on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
We will require this information by 12.30pm on Thursday 2 April.
Thank you for your co-operation.
