Birchills Church of England Community Academy

Free School Meal Vouchers


We have now been able to order families of Free School Meal children (FSM) vouchers through Edenred.  This is the same company that the Academy used during the last lockdown, and therefore should be familiar to you.


Vouchers will be issued on a weekly basis for £15.00 per child. If you have one child – you will received £15.00, 2 children - £30.00, 3 children - £45.00, and 4 children - £60.00. The vouchers can be redeemed for a number of supermarkets.


Vouchers have been ordered and will be emailed to you on the following dates (we cannot specify a time):


Monday 21st January 2021

Monday 1st February 2021

Monday 8th February 2021

Monday 22nd February 2021

Monday 1st March 2021


The vouchers are valid for 1 month.


As the vouchers are emailed out, please ensure that you check your ‘junk’ folder periodically to ensure that it has not been diverted to there.


Edenred have provided guidance and help sheets to answer your questions – please see attached.

The academy receives communications from Edenred to advise when vouchers have been downloaded and redeemed/spent. We will review this to help identify families who have not received or need help accessing the vouchers.


We will endeavour to answer your queries but as Edenred is an external company, we will be relying on their support and timeframes in responding to questions.
