How can I explain COVID-19 to my child?
Beacon School Support have written some guidance for adults to support them when explaining Coronavirus to children. This can be accessed here. They have also created some support documents to share with children.
Free School Meal Information
The School has received some queries from parents as to why they have only been able to collect a food voucher for one child, but not a sibling. This is because an application for any additional children for Free School Meals has not been made.
The most likely cause of this issues is that your child is currently receiving meals under the Universal Free School Meals scheme either in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This scheme is not covered under this current food voucher scheme.
The School has sent several reminders to parents to apply for Free School Meals outside of the universal scheme, which parents may have missed. If you wish to receive the current food vouchers for any additional children, it is very important that you complete the attached online application.

Once School has received confirmation that an application has been made and has been successful. The school will then add any additional children to its list and any additional food vouchers will be provided.
