Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for your support in these challenging times. I wanted you to know that we’re collaborating with the Local Authority to get food vouchers for children who currently receive Free School Meals. We are working hard to get these to you by next week.
For clarification these vouchers are only available to those children who are entitled to Free School Meals – unfortunately, this does not include those who are on Universal Free School Meals in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
Your child may be able to get Free School Meals if you get any of the following:
Children who receive any of the above benefits in their own right (ie they get payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals
If you think that your child is entitled to Free School Meals and you haven't already claimed them then we urge you to apply via the link as soon as possible: https://contactus.salford.gov.uk/?formtype=FSM_IBASSE
We hope this clarifies the situation but should you have any further queries please contact the school via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay home & stay safe,
Mrs J Clancy

As we have several staff who have health conditions, are ill or self-isolating, I am sorry that we will be unable to continue to use Seesaw as a form of communication. However, we will use email/text messages/website/Facebook to update you with information. So, if you have a general query you can either:
We love rainbows at Godfrey Ermen - they are a sign of hope and God's promise. Our 'Rainbow Challenge' is on Facebook at the moment...we hope that you join in!
