2nd April - FSM Update
If you think you might be eligible for FSM but have not applied, please contact raddinall@ipmat.co.uk requesting a form.  This can then be completed and returned to the Free School Meals team.
 
For those of you already eligible for FSM, an e:mail with your first voucher should be with you in the next day or two.
 
Please remember that during Easter holidays, no FSM vouchers or grab bags are available.  Vouchers will commence the Monday after Easter holidays (20th April) and continue to be issued via e:mail weekly until the next school holidays.
 
All pupils attending school from 6th April will need to bring a packed lunch with them to school, this includes pupils who have previously received Universal Free School Meals.
 
Below is a document with FAQs regarding FSM vouchers:
 
 
31st March - FSM Voucher Update
Please bear with us while we await further clarification regarding the voucher scheme for free school meals.  As soon as more details become available, we will be contacting those who are eligible.
 
If you think you are eligible for the voucher (please note this voucher is only for Free School Meals children and not the Universal Infant Free School Meals children) and the school does not hold your current email address, please email: raddinall@ipmat.co.uk with your current email address. 
 
 
28th March Update
NEW WORK LINKS
Some parents have requested further ideas for work.  The HOMEWORK page  (under the CURRICULUM tab) now includes plenty of links to websites for those who need them. This week's NEWSLETTER also includes other alternatives for those who need more ideas.
 
The SAFEGUARDING page (Under the PARENT tab) is also updated with links to information to help keep yourselves and your children safe online during school closure.
 
FSM voucher information will hopefully be available next week.  Keep checking for updates on this if it applies to you.

We have been informed some parents have received an email stating: ‘As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported’. This is a scam email - do not respond, and delete immediately.

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT 23.3.20

***********************************************************

Schools have not been instructed to close as yet but we will be ringing around parents again in the morning to check that their work is absolutely critical to the fight against Covid-19 and make sure that sending their children in to school is the absolute last resort following the further announcement tonight.

 

Please, if you can, STAY HOME - SAVE LIVES!

 

***********************************************************

 

IMPORTANT NEWS 22.3.20

 

Please can we remind everyone that the advice from Government, reiterated by the Secretary of State for Education on Saturday evening, is to keep your children at home if you are able to.  This needs to be the first priority in order to keep all pupils, parents, other relatives and staff safe and reduce the demand on the NHS.

 Secretary of State for Education

Please refer to the flow chart in order to help make the right decision in playing a part in combatting the virus.  The more pupils we have in school, the higher the chance of other children and staff getting the virus.  Children staying at home can prevent this and further unnecessary strain on the NHS.

 

 

 *********************************************

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

   

If your child is eligible for a Free School Meal, 'grab bag' lunches will be available in the playground for collection between 11.30am and 12 noon. This now no longer includes children who usually receive a universal free school meal. You will need to provide the code given to you on email by School Grid to receive a grab bag. Thank you.
