Information has been released by the Department for Education this morning about a voucher scheme for free school meals. As a school we only find out this information at the same time that you do, so I’d appreciate your patience while this is discussed in North Tyneside schools.
The DfE have announced that the vouchers can be sent for term-time only for when children should have been in school, and not for Easter holidays. I will hopefully be able to share more information about this by the end of the week.
in the meantime we are continuing to provide packed lunches every day for all free school meals pupils which can be collected between 11:30 and 12:30. Please let us know if you are self-isolating so we can deliver these to your home to help you.
