Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you for your continued understanding as we try to respond to the rapidly changing circumstances that we, as a country, are facing.
Going forward, we are altering how we resolve the issue with respect to Free School Meals for our Primary and Secondary academies.
Tomorrow, we will be providing vouchers for supermarkets from a site called Wonde, for those parents & carers that would normally receive free school meal provision for their child.
On Friday 27th March, those eligible will receive a text or email sending you to a site that will require you to select a preferred supermarket. Once you have selected your preferred option you will, on the same day, receive an e-voucher that you will be able to use in your preferred supermarket. Initially this will be for use during the following period:
Tuesday 31st March – Friday 3rd April – Voucher of £12
We will be in touch with you regarding future plans. These measures will allow you to comply with the government’s latest guidance for social distancing and isolation.
Below is a photo which demonstrates the process
If you have any issues with this process, please contact The Oaklands Primary school on 0121 706 2168
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents and carers for their co-operation throughout these difficult times.
