Free School Meals Christmas HOLIDAYs 2020


Dear Parents/Carers

Re: Free School Meal vouchers over Christmas holidays

We are currently working with the City Council to provide vouchers over the Christmas holiday for families whose children are eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals.

In the past schools used the DfE voucher provider – Edenred, but this is no longer available. Therefore, to ensure we can send you your vouchers successfully please ensure the school office has your up-to-date contact details, especially if you have recently changed your mobile number or email address. Vouchers can be sent using both sources to help you receive this funding, but you will only be able to redeem the value once.

Over the next few weeks you will receive a text from the voucher provider asking you to choose which supermarket you would like your vouchers from:

  • Asda
  • Aldi
  • Morrisons
  • Sainsbury’s
  • Tesco
  • McColls
  • Waitrose

Once you receive this text, please ensure you click on the link provided and identify which supermarket is your preference. This will enable us to identify families who are having some technical issues with this service and work with them during the next few weeks. The vouchers will then be sent before the holiday period. We don’t yet know the value of the vouchers, but as soon as we do we will let you know.
