If you are eligible for Free School Meals and your child’s year group is forced to isolate due to Covid you may request a food hamper. Food parcels are also available throughout the current lockdown.
Food parcels are put together by our catering partner Mellors and must be collected from school in a Covid Secure way – if you are isolating you must ask someone else to collect on your behalf.
Orders must must be placed by completing the form below by Monday 4.00pm EACH WEEK.
Parcels are to be collected between 9.00 and 9.30am each Friday. Only come to collect if you have received confirmation.
To order please complete the following form

Covid Winter Grant Scheme
The government has announced that it’s launching a Covid Winter Grant Scheme, which will provide funding for food and utility costs for vulnerable families over the winter, and food for children who need it over the holidays, up until the end of March 2021.
Wigan Council will:
- Receive the funding in early December 2020
- Identify which families are most in need (the government hasn’t specified that the scheme is only for FSM-eligible pupils)
- Distribute the support directly to families, rather than going through your school
