Holiday Free School Meal vouchers

Applications for the Holiday Free School Meal (FSM) Voucher Scheme for the October half-term is open until 12pm on 11 October.

This October half term, Gloucestershire County Council is providing vouchers to eligible families who have signed up to our Holiday Free School Meals (FSM) scheme. These vouchers are provided by Gloucestershire County Council as part of its commitment to ‘no child goes hungry’. The vouchers are funded through grant funding we have received and is separate to that of the term time free school meals.

The scheme is for children in reception to year 11 who receive benefits-related free school meals and attend a school in Gloucestershire. We are unable to consider college and sixth form students as well as children who receive universal free school meals as they are not eligible for this scheme.

Families who have signed up to the scheme will receive £15 per child, for the week half term.

Parents who have signed up previously do not need to re-register, they will already have been included. To ensure we reach all those who are eligible, we are encouraging parents that have not previously signed up, to sign up as soon as they can.

Applications for Holiday FSM vouchers for the summer holiday are now open until midday on 19 October.

If you have signed up previously you do not need to re-register, and we are encouraging any parents not already signed up to do so as soon as they can.
