FREE SCHOOL MEALS – PROVISION AND FUNDING DURING ENFORCED SCHOOL CLOSURE
2ND APRIL Good morning,
As you may be aware, the Government are providing additional funding for all pupils who receive BENEFIT-RELATED FREE SCHOOL MEALS (not currently universal infant free school meals) whilst schools remain closed.
Our staff are in the process of sending out E-vouchers to all families who qualify. You can find out further information and how this will take place. School will email the vouchers directly to parent email addresses.
If you think that your child would qualify for BENEFIT-RELATED FREE SCHOOL MEALS but you haven’t yet applied, you can make an application through the RMBC site. You can still apply for this, if you are eligible, and if your child receives infant free school meals.
(The application form is at the end of the information page)
