Free School Meals Vouchers Update


The Local Authority are funding vouchers over both the February Half Term and Easter Holiday period at £15 and £30 respectively. Our Trust, the YHCLT, will send the £15 half term vouchers out on Thursday 11th February - these need to have been accessed by parents by the 26th February after which the LA have instructed the YHCLT to claim a credit note for unused vouchers. YHCLT will ensure all the vouchers get to parents.

After half term, the government has committed to funding vouchers to 5th March so the YHCLT will send out 1 more £30 voucher on 22nd February which covers weeks commencing 22nd February and 1st March.

The YHCLT will then await further instruction from the government which we assume will rest on whether schools are back or not the week commencing 8th March.
