Free School Meals FAQs


Free School Meals Vouchers Update 03.04.20

The DfE has asked schools to support children eligible for free school meals where they are unable to attend school due to Covid-19. During these challenging times, we want to ensure that pupils eligible for free school meals can continue to access the support if required when they are not in school. The parent/carer of each child eligible for Free School Meals, is able to apply for a weekly £15 eGift card during term time.

How does it work?

The DfE 16 digit eCodes will be issued to parents or adults with caring responsibilities for the eligible child, via email on the 3rd April 2020. These codes are unique to each family. This code will cover the 1 week’s FSM allocation, for each child eligible. Parents and carers must use this eCode to redeem their eGift card, using the link www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk to select their chosen food retailer;


· Morrisons

· Tesco

· Sainsbury’s

· Asda

· Waitrose

· M&S food

Once the retailer has been selected, an eGift card will then be processed and sent to the same email account, as a digital voucher, within 3 hours. This eGift card will be provided either as a barcode or QR code depending on your chosen retailer.

The eGift card can be printed and used in-store, or on a smartphone screen. The eGift card can only be used for the purchase of food and groceries.

Further information for parents and carers on how the scheme works can be accessed using the link https://www.moorend.org/docs/letters/DfE_Free_School_Meals_ParentCarer_FAQs_April_2020.pdf.


Kirklees Council have announced this week that all students eligible for Free School Meals will receive an additional eVoucher, which is expected to support families during the 2 week Easter holiday period. These eVouchers will be issued on the 3rd April 2020 via the Kirklees Wonde system. This eSystem is very similar to the DfE process above.


We are pleased to be able to provide support for families within the community during the Covid – 19 pandemic.

Moor End Academy will continue to support any parents or carers that encounter issues when redeeming eGift cards. Should you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01484 222230.

 

COVID-19 UPDATE 03.04.20

As we come to the end of week two in this brave new world, I am deeply grateful for the contributions from everybody in our community, whether these be words or deeds. This united approach has enabled us to continue to support both our most vulnerable students and those whose parents’ jobs are critical to the Covid-19 response.

If you’re worried about the impact of coronavirus on your mental health, or the mental health of a child or young person in your life, you are not alone. The COVID-19 pandemic is a new and uncertain time for all of us and will affect our mental health in different ways. While most of the attention has understandably been on physical health, it is more important than ever that we make sure to look after our mental health and the mental health of our loved ones. If you do need support for your child or yourself, have a look at https://youngminds.org.uk/find-help/for-parents/supporting-your-child-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic/

You may in addition have concerns regarding the amount of time your child is spending online now that they have a great deal more time on their hands. You can of course continue to report any online issues via our website https://www.moorend.org/Safeguarding/Report-an-Online-Issue/, but in addition please take the time to look at the information provided by the links below:

For parents of year 11 students who have applied to Huddersfield New College to study A-levels please use this link https://www.huddnewcoll.ac.uk/student-life/preparing-for-a-levels to support your child with the transition to Key Stage 5. We will continue to share any information regarding college / transition / grades as soon as we have it.


Take care and stay safe. Together we are stronger.

Principal
