Free School Meal Vouchers

Dear Parent/Carer,
 
Free School Meal (FSM) vouchers have been ordered for the 106 pupils at St. Vincent's eligible for a benefits-related FSM. In response to Michael Gove's announcement, on Saturday 4th April, that vouchers can now be issued for the two weeks of the Easter holidays also, voucher orders have been placed for 6th and 13th April. Vouchers will be issued on the Monday of each week: vouchers are valid for 1 month from the date of issue.
A company called Edenred will issue the vouchers.

If you did not give the school a valid email address:
Each Monday, school will print your food voucher
School will select Asda as the supermarket where you can use your voucher
