Free School Meal - Voucher Scheme
The Government are now trying to move forward with the Voucher Scheme to support parents of children who have an entitlement to a Free School Meal. (This is different from Universal Free School Meals. Universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) provides funding for all schools to offer free school meals to pupils in reception, year 1, and year 2. ) If your child is entitled to Free School Meals we need parents to confirm their email address (and the name of your child) by sending this to email@example.com by Wednesday 8th April.
School will then organise the vouchers and we will send them via email to all parents who are entitled to receive them. The electronic voucher can then be taken to a participating supermarket for redemption.
No packed lunches will then be produced from school following the acceptance of a voucher.
If for any reason you do not have an email address you will need to collect your voucher from school at a pre-arranged time.
Please confirm your email details as soon as possible and, in line with Government Guidelines, vouchers will commence after the Easter Holiday, Monday 20th April 2020.
Please see below - Unless absolutely essential, please keep your child at home from Monday.
St George’s are hoping to be able to support our families as much as possible through these testing times. We understand some parents deliver front line services and the need for them to receive assistance with their child/children. We would ask all parents requiring this support to complete the form above or come into school to complete one. Please, please only complete the form if both parents are front line services and are unable to work from home. We will support as many parents as possible but we can only support for as long as our staff remain unaffected in sufficient numbers. As this changes daily, we therefore need to ask parents to have a contingency plan in place for their child/children as we are unable to guarantee how long we will be able to provide support. We are all facing challenges, staff and parents/carers alike and we want to re-assure you that even if we are not able to open school we would be available for you to contact should the need arise. More information on that by the end of today.

St George's is a welcoming, happy and diverse Catholic primary school. The school is a smaller than average primary school in a beautiful single storey Victorian building with large teaching spaces and grounds along with excellent facilities.
At St George's, every child really does matter; our dedicated and skilled staff nurture the full potential of every child, developing happy, confident and independent learners.
We are a close knit 'family' school; we are proud of the excellent relationships that exist within our school community and the respect and care that permeates our school.
Learning and progress are at the heart of our work. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.
