Free School Meals Voucher Scheme Update
The Department for Education is now supplying FSM vouchers directly to parent/carers of students who are eligible.
The DfE is currently working with a company called Edenred who will process the vouchers and send them directly to you. You should have received an email that will contain an Ecode, this can be redeemed on the Edenred website for a voucher to use at the major supermarkets and some other stores.
Instructions on how to redeem your Ecode and claim your voucher can be found on the Edenred website.
Edenred and the DfE are working hard to ensure that the Ecodes are being sent out to every family across the country who are entitled to them, which is a sizeable number, and therefore they are experiencing delays during these unprecedented times. However, we are doing our best to highlight the importance and urgency of these vouchers with Edenred when we are made aware of any issues by parent/carers.
If you have not received an email with an update or received your Ecode thus far, then please contact Harris Academy Falconwood at firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of the finance officer.
Please be aware that the Academy does not administer, process or distribute the evouchers. This is a Government and DfE initiative that has replaced the conventional scheme that was in place prior to the lockdown. However, whilst the Academy has no direct control over the new system, our staff are working hard to try and support any parent/carers who are experiencing delays.
