Edenred Free School Meal voucher scheme

You may be aware of the above scheme that the government have launched recently, that gives family with a free school meal entitlement financial support via the issue of a voucher for £15 per week, per child.


All of the schools within the Castle School Education Trust have been registered for this scheme and we have provided information to Edenred to enable the e-voucher to be sent to you each week through the period of school closure.


However, due to high demand, the issue of vouchers is currently delayed, but Edenred has given assurances that they will be issued to you as soon possible.
