Changes to Free School Meal eVouchers

From Monday 8th June 2020, the free school meal eVouchers will now be issued to eligible families via Edenred. This is a Department for Education website specifically set up for the Covid-19 school closures.

Please be aware that from the 8th June, voucher codes will be emailed directly to your email address from Edenred. Families will continue to receive weekly vouchers and you will also have a choice of supermarkets.

I have attached some links to Edenred’s website as well as a guidance document, which I hope you will find useful.

Dear Parents/Carers
