Update on Free School Meals National Voucher Scheme

Dear Parents and Carers

This is to update you on the latest information regarding free school meals and the introduction of the Government’s National voucher scheme with effect from Monday 18th January for a 4 week period, which will take us up to February half term.

The school is currently waiting for access to the system to place an order for the vouchers.

The School intends that the vouchers will be issued in two separate voucher instalments covering a two week period, as follows:

 1.    A £30 eCode will be provided towards the end of this week; this will cover the two week period Monday 18th January to Friday 29th January;

 2.    A second £30 eCode will be provided during the week commencing 1st February; this will cover the two week period Monday 1st February to Friday 12th February.

We appreciate this will mean a delay in vouchers being issued this week.   Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any support by emailing info@pks.coventry.sch.uk.

Kind regards,                                                                                                                                                                    President Kennedy School
