If you are eligible for free school meals you will now receive a monthly ‘cost of living’ voucher.
The vouchers will be £15 per month, per child. There is an additional payment of £30 for December, to coincide with the Christmas holidays. That’s £120 per child in total.
The vouchers will be paid from November 2022 (backdated) up to and including April 2023.
The vouchers are provided by Edenred. You can use Edenred vouchers in all supermarkets for essentials, including clothing.
If you receive a means-tested benefit and are entitled for Free School Meals (Pupil Premium) you will automatically receive the vouchers from your child's school.
