The Havering February half term School Meal Holiday Scheme provides £15 per child over the holiday to those who are eligible.

The scheme opens to receive applications from 9am on Monday 8 February and will close at 5pm on Friday 12 February for eligible residents.

If you received a payment for the October half term and/or December holiday period you do not need to reapply to receive money for February half term. The money will be paid into your nominated bank account automatically by Friday 12 February.

If you did not apply in October/December or you were not eligible at the time but your circumstances have now changed, please check you meet the eligibility criteria before submitting your application.

The scheme is for children who are of statutory school age and are eligible under the benefit criteria listed below for free school meals during term time.

The scheme is administered by each local authority to its eligible residents regardless of the borough of the school they attend, so if you live in Havering but your child goes to a school outside of Havering.

If you live outside of Havering but your child goes to a Havering school, you need to apply for the scheme with the borough you live in.

All infant age children receive free school meals, but only children in receipt of benefit related free school meals are eligible for this extra support.
