Free School Meal Vouchers
Free School Meals Vouchers over Christmas Holidays
The government’s ‘Winter Support Grant’ is funding free school meal vouchers for the Christmas school holiday period. The vouchers are for £30 to cover two weeks (Monday 21 December 2020– Friday 1 January 2021).
How to claim your vouchers
To claim your vouchers, you will need to follow the following steps:
- You will receive an email and a text from ‘SchoolVouchers.com’ containing a link to register and download your voucher(s). If you have not supplied the school with an email address (and are receiving this message by text), you will only receive a text from Vouchers.
- You will then need to click on the link, which will enable you to register and create an account. You will only need to enter your first name, last name, email address and mobile number (or mobile number if you received the link by text).
- You will then be able to select which supermarket you want to use – you can choose from Morrisons; Tesco; Sainsbury’s Asda; Waitrose; Aldi, Iceland and McColl’s.
- You will need to follow the SchoolVouchers.com instructions carefully, as depending on the supermarket chosen, there are some differences in the way it works.

Looking Ahead - Spring Term 2021
From Monday 4 January 2021, in the event that your child(ren) is required to self-isolate due to COVID during term time, the school will use SchoolVouchers.com to issue free school meal vouchers.
The school holidays at February Half Term will also be funded by the government’s Winter Support Grant, and free school meal vouchers for £15 will be issued via SchoolVouchers.com nearer the time.
If you haven’t received your Christmas school holiday voucher(s) by Monday 14 December, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and our finance team will assist you.
