Access to the voucher system for Free School Meals
The DFE announced that a voucher system will be put in place so that schools will distribute to those pupils who are eligible to receive a free school meal, once this information is available.
Pupils who are attending the academy will still receive their meals when they are on site. We will also be supplying any child who is entitled to a Free School Meal to a link to access a 10 day food voucher through Wonde. From Monday 11th April the Government Voucher scheme will start and all children entitled to a Free School Meal will receive an emailed link to their family main contact email address to claim their voucher.
Universal Free Schools Meals were not included in this announcement. This is the free meal that pupils receive up to the age of 7. For any child who is not entitled to receive a free school meal, parents are asked to pay for their child’s school meal in the normal way. If parents do have concerns about providing meals for children once the academies/ schools close, please contact the Principal and we will help and support you all we can. We have made links with local supermarkets and food banks in order to provide support for any family which requires this.
If you are unsure as to whether your child may be entitled to a free school meal then please visit https://www.doncaster.gov.uk/doitonline/free-school-meals and submit the online application for an immediate decision.
Staying safe online
Now more than ever it is important to ensure that your child has access to his/her learning whilst school is closed. For those who are unable to access resources online, school will endeavour to supply you with additional paper copies/worksheets for your child to complete at home. But with the ever increasing online traffic comes the issue of hackers and individuals posing not as themselves. Therefore please check out the links below to ensure your child stays safe online:
