Children in receipt of Free School Meals
Last term, it was announced that families in the Royal Borough of Greenwich that are currently in receipt of Free School Meals (i.e. you have applied for, and have been granted, a free school meals award), would be entitled to £15 per week per child for the Winter holiday periods (i.e. £30 for the two weeks over Christmas and £15 for the week of February half term, per child). Royal Borough of Greenwich are now planning to send out the £15 (per child) February half term payment in the week commencing 8 February 2021.
All new children that have signed up to free school meals since last time will receive the £15 for this half term alongside the £30 backdated from Christmas holidays. These payments to households will be taking place through Greenwich’s Advice and Benefits Service – this is separate to the current supermarket scheme (Tesco e-voucher).
Please see the attached letter for further information.
