Free School Meal Provision

Within school we have been responding to the recent announcement that parents of pupils on Free School Meals (FSM) will receive an e-voucher, which will allow them to spend the sum of £15 per FSM child at a range of supermarkets. When the system is up and running, parents will receive a code, which they will enter into www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk . Parents will then be able to choose an eGift card from a supermarket of their choice. At present, we are ensuring that we have all of the correct email addresses for the parents of pupils on FSM and the first vouchers should be sent to parents on the 20th of April. Information for parents about how the e-voucher system will work can be found at the following website:  https://www.edenred.co.uk/Documents/DfE/DfE_FreeSchoolMeals_ParentCarerFAQs.pdf

 

Free School Meals Entitlement 

This voucher will only be available for pupils who are eligible for FSM, not pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who receive universal free school meals. Due to the economic impact of the coronavirus, we recognise that the working situation of some of our families could have changed and on Wednesday, we sent out the FSM registration form for families who might now be eligible. If your working situation has changed and you now qualify for any of the following:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400 (as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods) 
  • Income Support Jobseekers Allowance (Income Based) Pension Credit (Guaranteed Credit) 
  • Employment and Support Allowance (Income Related) 
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum act 1999 Child Tax Credit with a joint annual gross income of no more than £16,190 (Providing you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit on a regular basis) 
  • A ‘Run-On’ of Working Tax Credit (Paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

your child could be entitled to FSM, with the potential for vouchers to be supplied as soon as eligibility is confirmed. Families who are already in receipt of  FSM do not need to re apply.
