Free Schools Meals During COVID-19 Closure
Dear Parents and Carers,
We know that many parents will be anxious about ensuring that you have enough supplies to be able to feed your child during the period whilst the Academy is closed due to the COVID-19 virus.
If your child is at home during the period of school closure, we have organised for you to receive a Tesco gift card which can be used to purchase food. The allowance for Free School Meals is £2.25 per day. The gift card is to the value of £15, which will cover the FSM allowance for nearly 7 school days. We will contact you today by telephone to ascertain if we can send the card home or you will require it more quickly, in which case it can be collected by prior arrangement.
On Wednesday 1st April, a further gift card will be made available for you. The nearest large Tesco store to the academy is Dunton Road (near the Old Kent Road) but there are many Tesco Local stores in the area, where in current conditions it seems easier to buy essential goods.
If your child is attending the academy every day as you are a key worker, your child will receive their free meals here and a gift card will not be issued. If your child attends a day or two a week, your cards will be issued accordingly, on a slightly different schedule.
We will be in touch soon with how we ensure you receive further top ups throughout the Academy closure period.
Should you be in need of any further support, please do not hesitate to contact the academy on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0207 732 2276.
