We have been made aware, by the local authority, that there are already scammers taking advantage of the meal vouchers' scheme. They should never ask for your bank details. If you receive a text or email asking for this information, it is a scam! Please ignore.
We have also had some queries from families who haven't received vouchers yet. To clarify;
The vouchers being issued only apply to pupils who qualify for free school meals, i.e. families on benefits or very low income.
If your child is in KS1, they would qualify for Universal Infant Free School Meals, which is a different scheme, where all pupils in Years R to Year 2, regardless of income, receive free meals.
