The DfE informed schools at the end of November that this is now the responsibility of the local authority, not schools directly. 

On our Covid Information, Guidance & Support page here https://longbenton.org.uk/parents/covid-information-guidance-support you will find:

- a letter from North Tyneside explaining the winter grant

- FAQs guide for families in receipt of the winter grant / free school meals vouchers

- Edenred's user guide which explains how to access e-vouchers

North Tyneside Council's participation team should be the first point of contact for any queries regarding the winter grant / free school meal vouchers at participation@northtyneside.gov.uk
