Free School Meals (updated 29.04.2020)

For the first 2 weeks of the lockdown, school provided packed lunches for all pupils entitled to a FSM, and whose parents requested and arranged collection. 

 

We have now processed applications for FSM vouchers, issued by the government, on your behalf for the Easter break and the first 3 weeks of the summer term (up until 8th May).  You will receive emails with a 16-digit code which you can exchange for a supermarket voucher - you have to do this before you go to the shop.  Vouchers are worth £15 per child per week during term time.  

 

There are delays within the government system and we are checking for updates daily - all the vouchers are now available for you to action if you have not done so already.

 

Please be aware that there have been a lot of issues with this system nationally and the procedures are taking much longer to action than the timescales quoted by Edenred.  

Bedworth Foodbanks

The foodbank is currently running from the Life Church premises on Bulkington Road, on Tuesdays and Thursdays only (12:00-14:00).  Clients will be asked to remain outside while their food packages are put together.  Please use the main entrance of the Life Church (rather than the side entrance).

 

If you are in need of a foodbank voucher or a food parcel, please contact school on admin2633@welearn365.com and we will arrange this for you.  

 

If people wish to drop off food, please do so at the Life Church on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
