For the 2021 October half term, state-funded schools in Merton are providing £15 worth of supermarket vouchers for each child who gets benefits-related free school meals.

If you are eligible but do not receive your vouchers in the last week of term, please contact your child's school directly.

We will also be providing directly for Merton residents with an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) who are eligible for free school meals and attending a non-maintained or independent school paid for by Merton. Please contact sen@merton.gov.uk if you believe you are eligible.

This scheme is funded by the Household Support Grant, a temporary grant from government to cover the period up to 31 March 2022. There will therefore be similar support for the Christmas and February half term holiday.
