Resources and Support Tips

Dear Parents

Please see below some recommendations of resources and tips to support you during the current COVID-19 outbreak. 

  •  CEOP is a well known and valuable child exploitation resource bank. Given current circumstances they are releasing a new activity pack every 2 weeks to support parents to deliver online safety activities with children at a time when they will be spending more time online at home.

FSM National Voucher Scheme

Dear Parent/Carer

Free School Meal National Voucher Scheme – Guidance for the parents/carers of eligible students

You will shortly receive an email direct from Edenred, the Government’s provider of free school meal vouchers.  This email will be addressed to your child, and may be redeemed by following the guidance provided in the body of the email.  If you have more than one child who is eligible for free school meals will receive a separate email for each eligible child.

Further guidance on the vouchers and how to redeem them is available by following the below link:

https://www.edenred.co.uk/Documents/DfE/DfE_FreeSchoolMeals_ParentCarerFAQs.pdf

Should you have any difficulties accessing the vouchers, or in the event that you have not received a voucher for an eligible child, please contact the trust’s finance department via cfo@congletonmat.com.

Please note that during the school closure period our response time to queries may be slower than usual, however we are working hard to field queries as promptly as possible, and will be ensuring all eligible children receive their entitlement to free school meals support.

Thank you for your continuing support.
