Late on Friday evening Birmingham City Council announced they are stepping in and providing vouchers for all Free School Meal children across the city. Whilst this decision to step in is welcomed, it has given school leaders no time to be prepared. The council themselves are yet to announce how this will be delivered to our families with more information expected this week.
At this time, it appears the council intend to retrospectively award vouchers to families after the holidays. School leaders are monitoring this situation, it is changing very rapidly.
We wish all families a welcome half term break and look forward to your return.
