As you are aware, school sites are now closed to the majority of children and staff and are operating only as a last resort as emergency childcare centres for those key children identified by the Government. In line with Government guidance, Knowsley Council has worked tirelessly to be able to help support you to provide free school meals for your child during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your patience whilst we work to resolve such matters.
If your child currently receives free school meals and is not attending school during this period of time, Knowsley Council has made arrangements for you to receive food vouchers via a partnership with Wonde.com. These vouchers will be sent once a fortnight, in the first instance via TEXT or EMAIL to your mobile phone. Knowsley Council will fund this service until a Central Government scheme is up and running. For Primary School Pupils the voucher will have a value of £32.20 and for Secondary School Pupils the voucher will have a value of £32.90.
You will shortly receive a text message from Wonde to confirm which supermarket you would like to use your voucher in. The supermarkets currently available are ASDA, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s (however Wonde are adding more in the near future).
If you have any questions about the message that you receive from Wonde, or if you believe you should have received a message from Wonde and haven’t, please contact the school office by the end of Friday 27th March 2020. Further updates about the scheme will be provided shortly both via Knowsley News (www.knowsleynews.co.uk), the school website and social media.
