Household Support Fund
The government have again made a 'Household Support Fund' available to local authorities to assist with the Cost of Living Crisis.
Durham County Council have agreed that households with a child in receipt of Free School Meals will receive a voucher payment of £110 to support with costs over the winter period. Children in nursery in receipt of Early Year Pupil Premium will also be eligible for a voucher. Schools have once again been asked to send out these vouchers.
An email will be sent to eligible families in the coming weeks, which will then be followed by the vouchers. If you do not receive an email and think you may be eligible (eligibility criteria can be found on our website: https://www.shottonprimary.durham.sch.uk/school-meals/ ) then please contact the office who will provide you with the relevant paperwork.
