Updates for parents/ carers eligible for benefits-tested free school meals

The government have introduced a national voucher system through the Edenred portal. School have requested that all families eligible send an email address to stedmundsrcfsm@gmail.com in order to access the vouchers.

Following this, a redemption eCode from the Edenred system will be sent directly to the parent or carers of the pupil(s) eligible for free school meals. You will then receive instructions on how to use this eCode to create an eGift card. The value of the gift card will be £15 per week per child. 

Through Edenred, you can currently access eGift cards for the following supermarkets: Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose and M&S.

Once families have received their voucher, they will be able to redeem them in-store at the selected retailer by either: presenting the voucher on a smartphone or tablet or presenting a paper copy of the voucher.

As the LA have already provided provision until the Easter break, the first codes will be sent on the 20th April and then weekly. 

If you have confirmed your email address and do not receive a code on the 20th April, please check your junk mail and trash. If the code is not there, contact the school for help.

If you have any questions, please read the FAQ document alongside this text.

Information from above shared by Salford City Council if you need help or advice.
