COVID Winter Grant Scheme

This has been a hard year for many families and individuals. The Government recently announced a “Covid Winter Grant Scheme” to help those most in need during the winter months.

This support will be provided as an “eCode” which can be exchanged online for a supermarket voucher to spend with a participating retailer (£15 a week per child).

Your child does not need to be registered for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM) to be able to receive this support.

You can apply from 5 to 11 December 2020 at https://www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/freeschoolmealswinter if you are:

  • eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM) not Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)*; or
  • entitled to Working Tax Credit with annual income less than £16,190; or
  • receiving Universal Credit with take-home pay less than £1,233.33 a month;

or

  • waiting for your first Universal Credit payment

If you would like to apply for support but don’t meet these requirements, please contact the school office to discuss your circumstances in confidence. Please read the letter below for more details.

Any queries regarding FSM vouchers over the break should be directed to the Stay Safe, Be Kind Helpline on 01902 290241 or freeschoolmeals@wolverhampton.gov.uk
