Cost of living vouchers

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's a larger payment of £30 for August, to coincide with the school holidays. That’s £120 per child in total.

The vouchers will be paid from April 2022 (backdated) up to and including October 2022. You will receive £30 in May to cover both your April and May payments.

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.
