Free School Meals information
Free School Meal Vouchers
Through Covid National lockdowns and holiday periods, the Department for Education (DfE) developed a national voucher scheme to support schools who are not able to provide eligible pupils not attending school with meals or food parcels through their current food provider. Our current provider (Aspens) worked with us through all lockdowns to supply good quality weekly food hampers.
Additionally, Westover Green used the Free School Meal supermarket voucher schemes throughout holiday periods and this has again been confirmed by Government for Christmas 2021 at least too. Parents are always notified of any changes.

Free School Meal weekly food hampers (we will retain this operational information in case of future lockdowns @Nov 21)
We provide a weekly food hamper for entitled children that can be collected from school on Mondays by their responsible adult. The hamper will be available from the school hall from 10:30.
Please adhere to your allocated time slot for collection. If someone is collecting the food for you then they must be a known adult to the school and you must have contacted the school to let us know in advance. We will ask you to keep your distance from each other in a line outside of the school hall doors and will admit entry for 2 people at a time. Any uncollected food will be redistributed to others in need.
If your ELDEST eligible child is in Year 6 please collect between 10:30am – 11:00am
