Free School Meals

7th July 2020 – Update regarding Free School Meal codes and Summer vouchers

Free School Meal codes will be distributed via Edenred email to families on the following dates:

Thursday 9th July – email code worth £15 per eligible child

Friday 10th July – email code worth £90 per eligible child*

Thursday 16th July – email code worth £15 per eligible child

*Please note that the £90 code is for a voucher for the six weeks of the summer holiday (6 weeks x £15). Please redeem the code within a month. The voucher will not need spending all in one go. Supermarkets will tell you how much of the voucher is remaining if you choose not to use it all in one transaction.


Please note that ‘Free School Meals’ is not the KS1 Universal Free School Meal that is given to KS1 children. ‘Free School Meal’ children are those who have applied for Free School Meal status.

2nd April 2020 – Free School Meal families have been contacted by telephone and text message so that we can set up an online voucher system.  The vouchers will be emailed to parents each Thursday and will be worth £15 per week per eligible child.  The vouchers can be printed off or scanned from a phone when families do their shopping.  At the time of writing the vouchers can be redeemed at the following supermarkets:

  • Morrisons
  • Tesco
  • Sainsbury’s
  • Asda
  • Waitrose
  • M&S

It is likely that other stores will get added to the list.
