Free School Meal Allowance Bank Payment Details Form - Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Summary (optional)
start content

While the situation regarding Coronavirus is developing it is becoming more difficult for your child to access a free school meal from the nearest school.

In order to support our entitled free school meal pupils we have decided to pay the allowance into parents/carers bank accounts so that you can purchase food for your children directly.

We currently do not hold bank account information for this purpose.

If your query isn’t covered in any of the frequently asked questions below, please contact us on the School Advice line – (01492) 575031.

Update: Direct payments for free school meals

The free school meal allowance will now continue during school holidays, as well as term time, until schools re-open or to the end of August if required.
