Holiday Free School Meal vouchers

The deadline to apply for Holiday Free School Meal vouchers for May half term is 12pm on 24th May

This May half term, Gloucestershire County Council is providing vouchers to parents who have signed up to our Holiday Free School Meals (FSM) voucher scheme. These vouchers are provided by Gloucestershire County Council as part of its commitment to ‘no child goes hungry’. The vouchers are funded through COVID-19 grant funding we have received and is separate to that of the term time free school meals.

Parents who have signed up to the scheme will receive a voucher for £15 for each child who is eligible for FSM which will cover the week of May half term. The scheme is eligible for children aged 4-16 years old. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider college and sixth form students.

For parents who have already signed up, if more of their children have become entitled to free school meals since they applied, please contact us at so we can update your amount, as this not an automatic process.

Sign-up for free school meal vouchers

Applications for Holiday Free School Meal Vouchers for May half term is now open until midday on 24 May.

When will the vouchers be sent out?

The vouchers will be sent out between 25th-26th May from the email address Please also remember to check your junk/spam email folders during this time as sometimes vouchers are automatically directed to there.

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.
