FAO Parents with children eligible for Free School Meals
Our teams are currently in the process of contacting all parents and carers of entitled free school meal pupils. This is to check that we have their contact details correct prior to issuing any vouchers or payments.
We have a Tesco voucher scheme set up, which we know will not suit everyone, however we are also in the process of also setting up a Pay Point “cash out” scheme, where parents will receive a voucher via SMS or email which they will be able to cash at a local pay point store (for cash).
If neither of these options are suitable, then parents will be able to contact the Income & Awards Team on 01597 826345 and request a payment to their bank accounts. Parents will receive £15.00 per week per child, this will include this week (30th March – 3rd April) and also over the Easter break period. Then ongoing fortnightly. Voucher queries can be made on 01597 826660, although all parents will be contacted by our team.
The Pay Point voucher scheme is taking a little longer to set up and should be available within 1-2 weeks, but we are pushing to get this set up as quickly as possible. Our teams are working hard to get this arranged ASAP.
