FSM Vouchers – Government U-Turn over half term funding

FSM Vouchers – Government U-Turn over half term funding

The government has decided to fund FSM (Free School Meals) over the current half term – 25th – 29th May.

In order for our parents/carers to have access to vouchers ASAP we will issue voucher orders that were originally made for next week.  We will liaise with Knowsley Council to have vouchers paid for tomorrow (Thursday) morning.  This means parents/carers will receive their half term vouchers tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon.

New vouchers will also be organised for the week of 1st June and allocated next week.

We hope this supports our families as we try to act as quickly as possible with changing government advice.

Please note these vouchers are not for UIFSM (Universal Infant Free School Meal) children, this is not currently supported under the current government scheme.
