Entitlements of a fixed term contractor

I have been with the same firm for more than 2 years. My contract end date (per contract) is 30 June 2020.
I have a 3 month notice period within my contract, and was expecting an extension to the current contract prior to Covid.
So, i am now in redundancy consultation and my question is:
Should i be paid 3 months notice from the day after i receive formal notice of redundancy (all options exhausted), or does the company only have to pay me to 30th June 2020 when my contract was due to end?
Thanks for your support and any advise ( i have already contacted ACAS and CAB)

    What did ACAS and CAB say?
    When you say over 2 years do you mean just over 2 years ?
    You have the right to a written statement of why the contract was not renewed. 
    The notice period is for ending it early, either you or them. So as they are ending it on the normal end date no more notice needed.

    Indeed with a fixed term contract the notice is irrelevant as you know when it's ending, but you would still get redundancy.
