Free School Meals Voucher System

Some parents and carers may be aware that the Government has extended the Free School Meal voucher system to cover the summer holidays. I am delighted that, at this difficult time, our students and their families will continue to be supported by this measure – Leicestershire County Council Information Leaflet on Free School Meals
For some families, their circumstances may have changed during the Covid 19 lockdown. If you think you may now qualify for support, I have added a letter here for you to follow – Information about Free School Meals criteria and application process

Your school team has also been supporting some families with food hampers as an alternative. It is vital that these families are now supported to switch to the national voucher scheme run by Edenred so that they can receive vouchers over the summer break. If you do receive a school hamper, please follow this link for advice on how to move over to the voucher scheme – How to switch from hampers to National Free School Meal voucher scheme

If you have any concerns, or would like more information, please call your child’s school directly . Alternatively you can email us at
