I am sure that you have all seen on the news and on social media the campaign to ensure that children who would normally have Free School Meals continue to have them this half term. Marcus Rashford has been campaigning very hard over this issue and previously the government have listened and have issued vouchers directly.
Currently they are resisting the call to do this, however in consultation with our Governors we have made the decision to issue vouchers directly from school on this occasion. This will arrive via the Wonde system.
We wish you all a happy half term.
All those struggling to cope with basic essentials during this pandemic can contact the Peterborough City hub for help and advice – which might include support and direction to other sources of help, and this includes families who may be struggling but are not eligible for free school meals on 01733 747474.
The Peterborough City hub has been supporting people to access food and other supplies if they are struggling to provide for their families; and this can also help those who are eligible for free school meals during the holidays.
“We are delighted that so many local businesses are stepping up to offer additional support – and would urge them to make these offers directly to the Hub as we know and are in touch with all of those who will be able to make best use of this,” Cllr Fitzgerald added.
Further reminders of how to access help from the hub is being issued to the parents of all children eligible for free school meals in Peterborough from their schools.”
