St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Free School Meal Vouchers

From 6th April, Children eligible for free school meals will benefit from a national voucher scheme allowing them to continue to access meals whilst they stay at home.  St Teresas can now provide every eligible child with a weekly shopping voucher worth £15 to spend at supermarkets while we are closed due to coronavirus.  Parents/carers will receive an email from school containing a 16 digit e-code.
