Free School Meals
Free School Meal Voucher Update
The government have still not released details of when the national voucher scheme will be available. Currently, until 27-3-2020, any family can text 07889 227233 before 10am to collect a free lunch on the day. However, we are working hard to create our own voucher system until the national scheme is ready. This will only be available to those eligible for a Free School Meal, if you do not currently receive this please go to https://www.coventry.gov.uk/info/54/benefits/168/free_school_meals to see if you can apply. It will be reassuring for the school to be able to know everyone who is eligible has been able to access this support.
The voucher will be distributed to the primary contact we hold on school file. We have worked hard to try and verify all the details we hold, but mobile numbers do change regularly, so please let us know ASAP if you have a new number. The primary carer for each child should receive the voucher so if you have had to change arrangements due to the current situation, please inform us.
If you do not qualify for Free School Meal, we are working with local partners to support any families that are struggling, particularly with meals. Please contact us and/or your local Family Hub for information as below.
It has been great to hear of the way the community is supporting each other in so many ways. Please continue to follow the advice and don’t hesitate to contact us.
