St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School

Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus

WELCOME

Dear Children, Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to the website of St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School.

We pride ourselves on being a family community, where each person is cherished as being God's unique creation. We recognise that each person is created in the image and likeness of God.

We work hard to ensure that each person in our school family is given all that they need to thrive and become confident, kind and loving people.

As it says in the Gospel of John,

 'I have come that they might have life and live it to the full.' (John 10:10)

Kindest regards,

Mrs Louise Byrne

Head Teacher 

FREE SCHOOL MEALS DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE. 

Dear Parent / Carer,

We hope this letter finds you well.  As you are aware, school sites are now closed to the majority of children and staff and they are operating only as emergency childcare centres for those key children identified by the Government. 

In line with Government guidance, Knowsley Council has worked with the school to be able to support you to provide meals for your child during these difficult times.  Thank you for your patience whilst we have worked to resolve this matter.

If your child currently receives free school meals

  1. Because the family is eligible due to meeting the means tested criteria (due to income)

or

  1. Because they are entitled to Universal Free School Meals eligible to Reception to Year 2 children

Knowsley Council has made arrangements for you to receive food vouchers via a partnership with Wonde.com.  This will replace the previous arrangement of collecting a packed lunch.

These vouchers will be sent once a fortnight, in the first instance via TEXT or EMAIL to your mobile phone. Knowsley Council will fund this service until a Central Government scheme is up and running. For Primary School Pupils the voucher will have a value of £32.20 and for Secondary School Pupils the voucher will have a value of £32.90.

You will receive a text message from Wonde in the next few days to confirm which supermarket you would like to use your voucher in. The supermarkets currently available are ASDA, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s (however Wonde are adding more in the near future).

Please contact the school via telephone / email during office hours of 9am - 11am on Monday 30th March if you have any questions about the message that you receive from Wonde

OR

  1. Your child is eligible for Free School Meals (due to either reason above) but you have not received a text from Wonde. It may be that your contact details are not up to date with school.

(Please do remember we have limited staff to answer calls during the hours of 9am - 11am, please try and await your message from Wonde for further details.)

Further updates about the scheme will be provided shortly both via Knowsley News (www.knowsleynews.co.uk), the school website and social media.

We hope that you are keeping you and your family safe and thank you once again for your patience and support.
