Last week we applied to the DfE for Free School Meals vouchers for all pupils on our list who qualify for benefits-related free school meals and whose parents sent us their personal email address. A code will have been emailed to you from Edenred which you then exchange online for supermarket eGift cards. Look out in your inbox or junk box for your voucher code from Edenred. These are valued at £15 per child per week. We applied for these to cover the next few weeks. If you have any questions about this please go to www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
If you think that your child should be on the list for benefits-related free school meals but they are not currently you can email student support via email@example.com and they will advise if you need to reapply.
The DfE have been in touch with schools to say that due to Edenred receiving a high volume of requests there has been some delay in sending these out to parents and carers. We still have some packed lunches at school for collection every day if you would like these while you are waiting.
