As some of you may be aware we are working to get our children eligible for Free School Meals supermarket shopping vouchers rather than food delivery to the door. This will then mean you can use the vouchers at the supermarket to buy items of your choice. The payments will be weekly when up and running to cover the 5 days meals equivalent. We started the process of organising this with an external provider last Wednesday when we were aware it was available. As I’m sure you can appreciate the external providers of these services are overloaded with schools and are working as quickly as possible to get things off the ground.
If you are entitled to FSM you will receive your vouchers by Friday. These will delivered in the form of a text message to your mobile phone. There will be a QR code on the message that you will present at the till at the supermarket you select. We will provide further details on the supermarkets these can be used at shortly.
In the interim period if you require some support please can I direct you to the flyer attached with details on some companies that can offer support.
Many thanks for your continued support during this period.
