COVID19 – Food Vouchers

You should receive your latest round of FSM funding to the value of £60 sometime w.b 04/05/2020.

Please check your email spam & junk boxes regularly.

Do not contact Compass regarding this matter before Monday 11th May, as it could be any day next week you receive them.

For those families without an email, you will receive a paper voucher from the academy once we receive the information from the provider Edenred. This will be sent through the post.

Please be patient as they are processing millions of vouchers for schools across the country.

Thanks for your understanding in this matter.
