Free School Meals Information

Welcome to our free school meals information page for updates and information regarding vouchers and eligibility.

Voucher Update

The government have announced that they will not be providing vouchers for families, during the February half term. Following this announcement, we have liaised with Tower Hamlets to put in place a suitable measure to support our students and their families during these difficult times. Tower Hamlets have agreed to provide £12.50 per eligible child during this period.

We will continue to provide vouchers via Edenred. The voucher will be for the amount of £15.00 for the half term week. We would like to make you aware that £12.50 of this is for the February half term week and the remaining £2.50 will be allocated to a future week; the exact timing to be confirmed. The voucher issued for that particular week will be £10.00 so the total will amount to £12.50.

Edenred

If you received a voucher via Edenred and are unsure of how to redeem this, please visit the Edenred Free School Meal Voucher page for more information.
