Free School Meal Vouchers during holidays

Free School Meal Vouchers

Vouchers are paid to families in receipt of free school meals during holiday periods. Vouchers will be sent by email or mobile text message for each child in a family in receipt of free school meals due to low-income.  Vouchers are issued to the main contact for the child.  We use the information held by your child’s school to issue vouchers so please ensure your contact information is correct at your child’s school.  

Vouchers are only available for children in Primary 1 to Secondary 6 in receipt of free school meals due to low-income.

The periods where vouchers are paid are:

  • February mid term
  • Spring holiday
  • Summer holiday
  • October holiday
  • December/January holiday

Vouchers are not paid for school closure days or occasional holidays.

Vouchers are paid every two weeks and have a value of £25.00.  These vouchers are redeemed online and can be used at most supermarkets.  Vouchers should be used at the time they are received. We regret that we are unable to reissue vouchers or voucher codes which have expired.

If you would have difficulty in accessing technology to redeem your vouchers, please contact your child’s school, who can request that alternative arrangements are put in place.  

You can find details of how to contact your child’s school here 

Vouchers are only available where a family meets the criteria for free school meals due to low income. More information and details of how to apply can be found here.
