Free grocery vouchers for free school meal children

We have been asked to share this message from Derbyshire County Council. 


You may have heard that the Government have awarded further Household Support Fund (HSF) grant monies to Derbyshire County Council to support local households facing financial hardship over the winter (October 2022 to March 2023). We are pleased to announce that we intend to distribute free grocery vouchers to families who are eligible for benefit related free school meals.


The vouchers will be distributed in early January 2023. 


With this in mind we will be sharing information with the Local Authority to confirm the names of children who have benefit related free school meals. Please note that this does not include children in reception, year 1 and year 2 who have universal free school meals. 


If you have any questions relating to this please don't hesitate to get in touch with the school. If you are eligible for these free vouchers and would rather not receive them please contact the school by Wednesday 7th December at the latest.
