DfE Free School Meal (FSM) Voucher Scheme


Dear Parent / Carer


I hope you and your families are well.


Up until now you will have been receiving a 15 eVoucher from Edenred per child per week to support you and your family during the COVID outbreak and lockdown whilst your child(ren) are away from school.


As we near the end of term you will be aware that the government has agreed to continue to fund the Free School Meal (FSM) Voucher Scheme payments through the summer holidays. This will be in the form of one payment of 90 per child (6 weeks at 15). Mr Waterhouse our Finance manager is processing these for release during the week beginning Monday 13th July.


As such during next week you will receive separate eCodes from Edenred for:


         15 per child for the week Monday 13th July Sunday 19th July

         90 per child for the Summer Holiday, Monday 20th July Sunday 30th August


Please be aware that from Monday 31st August, the governments Free School Meal (FSM) Voucher Scheme will cease. No further payments will be made directly to your family. Your child(ren) will continue to receive FSM each day at school as prior to lockdown


If you have any queries or concerns please contact our Finance team either by email or phone at school,


I wish you and your family a restful summer break and look forward to seeing your child(ren) back with us in September.

Keep safe
