Free School Meal Provision during School Closure

Free School Meal Vouchers - (Not for KS1 Universal Meal Scheme. This is only for those families who have means tested FSM entitlement)

We have received information from the DfE and Edenred, regarding the provision of free school meal vouchers. We have several options available to us but the simplest way of doing this appears to be by the parent/ carer registering with their email address with the school. They will then receive their e-voucher by email, this can then be presented at your chosen supermarket on their smartphone. If you wish to use the e-voucher scheme and have already registered an email with school through parent pay we can use this email.

Paper vouchers can be produced but due to social distancing restrictions in place, this is not something we are encouraging. We will look into how this can be done safely and will be in touch shortly if this is your preferred method.

If you would like to use a different email, or would prefer to use paper voucher, please contact the school at

Please read the Edenred FAQ for more information.
