FSM Vouchers

31 March 2020 (by schoollogin)

FSM Vouchers will be running until the end of June.

Parents entitled to FSM vouchers
Please be aware of a scam circulating at the moment. Edenred will not ask you for your bank account details.
The scam email reads
'As schools are closed , if you are entitled to free school meals please send your bank details and we shall make sure you are supported'
If you are at all unsure please contact school.

We have received the following information from Rotherham Council 

There appears to be some social media discussion amongst some parents that they are expecting vouchers if their child normally gets free school meals (FSM) as part of the universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) system. This is not the case, only parents/carers of pupils who meet the requirements of FSM through the benefits entitlement can be allocated vouchers.  

If you are entitled to free school meals you can still apply on the website below.

If your child is in receipt of benefits entitlement Free School Meals, you are now entitled to a weekly supermarket voucher.
The Free School Meal voucher will replace the daily grab bags and food boxes.
Parents of children who are entitled to benefits entitlement Free School Meals will receive an email this week with further information and their voucher code. If you are not in receipt of benefits entitlement Free School Meals and think you qualify please can we advise you to contact Rotherham Council.

If parents are redeeming  Free School Meal Vouchers, their child  will need to bring their own packed lunch when in school as they wont be entitled to one from Dolce then.
