Free School Meals - October Half Term
INFORMATION FOR PUPILS ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS
As you may be aware, following central Government’s decision to not provide Free School
Meals for the October half-term period, Northamptonshire County Council decided to
distribute vouchers in their place, in an effort to help support our most vulnerable families.
Each eligible child was to receive a voucher to the value of £15, that could be used at a
number of supermarkets.
I am pleased to confirm that the majority of children and young people eligible for FSM in
the county are now in receipt of a £15 voucher.
However, vouchers were distributed using contact details for parents that were provided at
the time the initial application for FSM was made. In some instances, NCC do not hold
contact details for individual children and young people or the contact details were out of
date. As such, not all children and young people who are eligible for FSM will have
received a voucher.
Northamptonshire County Council would like to request your school’s assistance in
signposting the voucher offer to all eligible parents at your school.
If a family has access to email
All parents will need to do is access the claim form using the link below and complete an
online request for a voucher. Once their eligibility has been confirmed they will receive a
voucher via email.
If you need any help with this, please contact Natalie in the school office.
