Information on additional Free School Meal Vouchers

Dear parents and carers,

Re: Free School Meal vouchers

As you may have heard, Tameside Council announced that no child in Tameside on free school meals would go hungry over the half-term break. A voucher to the value of £15 from either Tesco or Asda is available for each eligible child even though half-term is over.

Parents or carers of children on benefits-related free school meals can go to the Tameside Council website and complete an online form to access the voucher. Further information and how to apply can be found here at

 If you are unsure about filling in the form please contact the Early Help Access Team on 0161 342 4260 to talk through the process. Likewise, if you need any other urgent support you can contact the team on the same number. There is also information on wider help available for children and families on their website at

The deadline for completing the form is 8th November.
