27/03 Update: If you are eligible for free school meals (based on your household income, not your child's age) school have purchased Asda vouchers of £25 to help you to buy food for your child. The school kitchen is no longer providing cold packed-lunches. The voucher is to support you to buy food up until 9th April. We hope the government have a national voucher scheme for after the 9th; we will keep you informed of any developments. If you think you may be eligible for free school meals because you are eligible for certain benefits (e.g. income support) please email email@example.com or telephone 01302 842092 and we will try to help. Thank you

Below are some frequently asked questions to the government that you may find useful.
Will every child at home due to school closures receive support?
This support focuses on those eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
Will pupils who become newly eligible for free school meals be supported?
Yes. Schools and local authorities should continue to accept free school meal applications. Parents should make contact with the school or local authority, who will verify eligibility and award free school meals.

What about infants that receive a free meal under universal infant free school meals?
It is right that schools concentrate their effort and resources on those who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals at this time.

Children in those year groups who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals will be supported.
