Applications for Holiday Free School Meal Vouchers for the May half-term period is now open until midday 24th May. Voucher emails will be sent out between 25th and 26th May.

This May half-term, Gloucestershire County Council is providing vouchers to parents 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 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 half-term week. The scheme is eligible for children aged 4-16 years old. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider college and sixth form students.

 

Parents who have signed up previously do not need to re-register, they have already been included, but to ensure we get all who are eligible, we are encouraging new parents to sign up as soon as they can.

 

If more of your children have become entitled to free school meals since you applied, please contact us so we can update your amount, as this not an automatic process.
