Further Education students:
All students who have been assessed as entitled to receive free schools meals (5 meals per week) or subsidised free meals (2 meals per week) will continue to receive their meal allocation whilst studying remotely though the form of a payment. Most of you have provided us with bank details, you will be paid your fortnightly amount of £10 for subsidised meals or £25 for free meals directly into your bank for on Monday 23.03.20. The bank account details you have provided us with on your application form will be the bank account details your payment is issued to. Some of you have provided us with parents bank account details, you should make enquiries with your parents as this payment will show up in their account on Monday of each of the week listed.
If you have not provided us with bank account details you will have been contacted to come and collect from the cash office. Due to new Government guidance on further reductions on social contact we are now providing alternative arrangements to pay this amount into your bank account. If you have not collected your payment yet please do not come into college to collect as previously advised. Instead e mail email@example.com/a>firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and bank details. If you do this before 4pm on 24.03.20 you will receive your payment on 27.03.20. If you do this after 4pm 24.03.20 you will receive you payment on 03.04.20.
14-16 College students:
All students who are in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding and for who Free School Meals are provided will continue to be provided their daily allowance. This will be provided as cash, covering the period of time between when students are sent home and the Easter break. If the College remains on remote working to students after the Easter break, further payments will be provided and details will be communicated at the appropriate time.
In order to collect the payment(s), we will require an adult to come in and sign for this. They will need to bring with them the student ID corresponding to the student eligible before the money is released to them. Parents should enter the 14-16 College via the Balliol Road entrance where staff will be present to issue payments.
All parents of eligible students will be contacted by a member of the 14-16 College Pastoral Team shortly after the announcement to remote work is made. If you have not been contacted, please, in the first instance, contact the appropriate Progress Coach:
