Help and information for parents and carers
During these challenging times, many families have been concerned about how they will receive the financial support they need to feed their children at home without the free school meal entitlement during the partial closure of schools.
To help deliver this support, Edenred UK are working with the Department for Education (DfE) to deliver supermarket vouchers to those families, where schools are not able to make food available directly to families.
You will receive this support;
• In the form of an eCode that you can redeem online from a selection of supermarket ‘eGift cards’ if the school has a working email address for you, or;
• If you do not have an email address or access to the internet, your school will print off the voucher, or ‘eGift card’, and post it to your home address, or arrange a collection if easy and safe to do so.
If you do require further help, our would like more information about ‘Free School Meals’ please contact the school office on 01914104571 or email our new School Business Manager Mrs Lister at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a ‘Free School Meals’ section on our school website https://portobelloprimary.eschools.co.uk/website/free_school_meals/475371
Welcome to Portobello Primary School.
Portobello Primary is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve; our children are at the heart of every decision we make.
Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children foster a passion for learning and a curiosity that will develop high aspirations and a lifetime of happy memories. At Portobello Primary School we strongly believe in the power of a growth mindset. We believe that ALL children have the ability to achieve what they want to achieve.
Everything we do encourages our children to understand that intelligence can be developed. Our pupils see school as a place to develop their own abilities, they think of challenges as opportunities to grow.
Our school has a dedicated team of staff who work hard to reach high standards. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child’s education and value your interest and support.
Please do read our weekly newsletter for the latest developments in school. We warmly welcome any visits and would be delighted to show you our school in action.
