The government have introduced a national voucher system through the Edenred portal. Eligible parent email addresses have already been registered onto it via the school.
A redemption eCode from the Edenred system will be sent directly to the parent or carers of the pupil(s) eligible for free school meals. You will then receive instructions on how to use this eCode to create an eGift card. The value of the gift card will be £15 per week per child. Alternatively, if you have informed the school that you would rather be sent a paper copy of the voucher, this will be sent to you in the post.
Through Edenred, you can currently access eGift cards for the following supermarkets: Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose, M&S, Aldi and Iceland.
Once families have received their voucher, they will be able to redeem them in-store at the selected retailer by either: presenting the voucher on a smartphone or tablet or presenting a paper copy of the voucher.
If you do not receive a code please check your junk mail. If the code is not there, contact the school on email@example.com for help.
If your child is attending school, they will receive a cooked meal on site instead of the vouchers.
From September 2020, school is open to all pupils and meals will be cooked on site and provided to all children who are entitled to a free school meal. Vouchers will not be available as an alternative option. If you would prefer to provide a packed lunch for your child then it is fine for you to do so.
