Holiday Free School Meal Voucher Scheme
This Spring break, 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 £30 for each child who is eligible for FSM which will cover both the two weeks of the Spring holiday. 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.
For parents who have already signed up, if more of their children have become entitled to free school meals since they applied, please ask them to contact us so we can update their amount, as this not an automatic process.
Applications for Holiday Free School Meal Vouchers for the Easter holiday period is now open until the 4th April. Voucher emails will be sent out between 6th and 7th April. Please encourage parents to also check their junk/spam email folders during this period as sometimes the vouchers end up there.
The vouchers will be sent out between 6 – 7 April from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also remember to check your junk/spam email folders during this time as sometimes vouchers are automatically directed to there.
If parents have not received their vouchers by then please encourage them to get in contact with us by emailing email@example.com.
