Those in receipt of Free School Meals are receiving support during the Coronavirus crisis.

From now on, there will be two options available for receiving Free School Meals, either a Tesco supermarket voucher or a financial payment made directly into the bank.

Both options have the same financial value, which is £39 per child per fortnight.

A payment will also be made over Easter. Families with children in receipt of Free School Meals would not usually receive support over the Easter holidays, but we feel that as a Council we need to make every effort to help as much as we can in such uncertain circumstances.

Families do not need to contact the Council. All eligible families will receive an e-mail which will include details and instructions.
