We are committed to supporting our families to be well fed during term time and in the holidays.  We are also putting together avenues for support for uniform, school equipment and books which we will publish in the next few weeks.

Free school meals

If you qualify for free school meals during term time we will ensure your child gets a full, nutritious meal at lunchtime.  In the school holidays we will work with local and central government as well as charities and local groups to support you to do the same:

October 2020 half term: We will use the WONDE system to issue a £15 voucher for you to use in local supermarkets. This will be sent to you the evening of 26th October and we will be available for help and support on Tuesday 27th from 9–3pm if neeeded.

Please keep reading for more help available. This does NOT impact any of your benefits.  You do not need to be referred.

For anyone, not just FSM families, who need help:

You can always contact us on office@heartlands.haringey.sch.uk if you are struggling to support your family, no judgement we just want to help!
