Feb 05, 2021

Havering Council will continue to fund the School Meal Holiday Scheme for those most in need during February half term, and from Monday 8 February, families will be able to apply for the £15 for each child in receipt of free school meals to support them while school is closed.

The borough will run the scheme, with the February application window opening at 9am on Monday 8 February, and will close at 5pm on Friday 12 February. Families who received a payment for the October half term and Christmas holiday period do not need to reapply, and will automatically receive the funds into their nominated bank account by Friday 12 February. Eligible families who make a new application in February and have not received payment via the School Meal Holiday Scheme in the past, are expected to receive payments over half term.
