Free school meals for eligible pupils over the half term period

Dear Parents/Carers, 

You may have seen on Friday, 23rd October, that the Leader of the Council announced that Birmingham City Council will fund free school meals for eligible pupils over the half term period. 

For those students eligible for Free School Meals, food vouchers will be distributed to families straight after the half term break by their schools. 

In the meantime if you do need support during the Half Term break, please follow the link below, available from Birmingham Children’s Partnership, for locality contact details of food distribution banks. 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact school via email if you require any further support or guidance. 

General enquiries:

We hope you enjoy the October half term break and look forward to welcoming students back on Monday 2nd November at 8.45am 

Kind regards
