Latest updates and Advice

FSM information

After the Easter holidays we will be moving to the government's voucher scheme instead of delivering lunch bags where possible.This means that if you have registered with Bolton Council for tax and benefits, and are entitled to FSM you will receive a voucher worth £15 weekly per child to shop at a local supermarket.

In order to get the voucher to you, we need an updated email address from you sent to the school office.

office@johnsonfold.bolton.sch.uk

Please simply put your child's name and which class they are in on the email.

I have included the link to the Bolton Council website where you can check if you are entitled to FSM or not.

The voucher scheme will not be running until after the Easter holiday (April14th), so we have plenty of time to gather your email addresses.

I am not in school today so please do not ring, just email only. Please be patient.

Thanks

Mrs Dean

How the voucher scheme will work

 If you have given us your updated email address, we will send you a code week beginning 14/4/2020 to your smartphone/tablet for you to present at one of the following supermarkets:

Morrisons

Tescos

Sainburys

Asda

Marks and Spencers

You will be able to buy any healthy food or drink for your child.

 

Some parents may not have access to a smartphone/tablet etc and we can still provide a packed lunch if that is what parents would prefer.
