FREE SCHOOL MEAL VOUCHERS INFORMATION

Re: Free school meals over the Summer holidays Following the recent campaign by Marcus Rashford, the Government has agreed to provide vouchers for children (in Reception to Year 6) that are eligible for free school meals throughout the six week holidays. These are for week commencing Monday 20th July to week ending Friday 30th August.

These vouchers will be for £15 per week, for each eligible child (so £90 for the full holidays).

To reduce the amount of time spent processing these vouchers, they will be issued in 3 weekly blocks (please see examples below):

  • If you have 1 eligible child – week commencing 13th July you will receive vouchers to the value of £45, then week commencing 10th August you will further vouchers to the value of £45
  • If you have 2 eligible children – week commencing 13th July you will receive vouchers to the value of £90, then week commencing 10th August you will further vouchers to the value of £90
  • If you have 3 eligible children – week commencing 13th July you will receive vouchers to the value of £135, then week commencing 10th August you will further vouchers to the value of £135
  • If you have 4 eligible children – week commencing 13th July you will receive vouchers to the value of £180, then week commencing 10th August you will further vouchers to the value of £180 The activation link for these vouchers will be issued by Edenred and will come from the email address: noreply@edenred.co.uk (please check your spam emails if it doesn’t arrive). You will need to click on the link to activate the voucher, fill in your details and choose the supermarket that you want the vouchers to be issued for. You should then receive a voucher (via email) from your chosen supermarket within 24 hours (again please check your spam).
