Free School Meal Voucher Update – 15th April

Free School Meal Voucher Update – 15th April

The new government scheme to provide supermarket vouchers is unfortunately experiencing delays. This is due to the vast amount of orders being placed and then also being redeemed. This is affecting all schools locally and nationally. The government have been upgrading the system to cope with the demand, so the problems should reduce moving forwards.

If you provided school with an email address, then you will receive an email from “Edenred” with the instructions about how to choose which supermarket* and how to redeem the voucher. Some parents have still not received this email as on Wednesday 15thApril, whilst some parents have. We expect all parents to have received their email in the near future.

If you did not provide school with an email address, it may take slightly longer as school will have to pass the details on to you.

We will try and update the website as we have any further updates.
