**FREE SCHOOL MEAL MESSAGE 11.01.2021**
The second set of COVID winter shopping vouchers are due to be sent in mid February.
The money to pay for these vouchers has come from the government through its COVID-19 winter grant scheme which is over and above the other support schemes already provided by Derbyshire County Council.
If you received vouchers in December and your circumstances haven’t changed then you should be eligible for vouchers in February.
The amount each voucher is worth will depend on the number of children in the region who qualify at that time.
These will be sent automatically using text or email by Derbyshire County Council using the contact details held by school.
Please ensure the contact details we hold for you are up to date and correct.
You must do this before 29 January 2021.
For full details of the scheme or to see what help and support is available, please visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/winter
If your financial circumstances have changed since December you may be eligible
to apply for free school meals at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals or free
childcare for 2-year-olds at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/freechildcaretwo
If you are successful in your application, you will be added to the February voucher
