Holiday vouchers for free school meals and support

 

We are pleased to confirm we will be issuing ASDA vouchers for the summer holidays for pupils eligible and registered for free school meals. Somerset County Council have agreed to fund the cost of £10 per pupil per week. £60 of vouchers will therefore be available in on-line accounts by 22nd July 2022.

 

In addition to the vouchers, the council has set up a web portal for families in urgent need (not just those who have free school meals) to get help. Through the link below, families can get additional food vouchers. The link also provides details of fuel vouchers and can help with other essentials such as white goods. Families can use this portal in addition to, or instead of free school meal vouchers.
