Free school meal voucher scheme

Measures have been put into place to ensure children eligible for free school meals can continue to access meals while schools remain closed.

The government has introduced a nationwide scheme which allows schools to issue vouchers of £15 a week per child to families to spend on food.

Some of our schools are currently able to provide meals to children via their own in-house arrangements but where this isn’t possible, vouchers can be used. The vouchers will be sent to families either electronically or via post depending on preference.

The vouchers will be distributed directly by schools so you will need to contact your child’s school to find out individual arrangements.

The government has issued more detailed guidance on the voucher scheme.

Please get in touch with your child’s school directly for more information.
