Covid Winter Fund Scheme December 2020
The Department of Education are providing vouchers for parents entitled to benefits related Free School Meals for over the Christmas Holidays.
This time it is not through the National Voucher scheme, which was running in the summer term, but are issued directly by the school.
At Garden Suburb Infant School we use an online system schoolvouchers.com to issue these to our parents.
All eligible parents have been sent an email by the system and are asked to register, once registered they are able to redeem their vouchers for a supermarket voucher of choice.
Attached below are full step by step instructions and a list of the supermarkets along with some other useful information.
If parents experience any problems with the system then go to Parent FAQs - School Vouchers where you will find step by step guides and an email address to contact their helpdesk.
There is also a helpful video below which takes you through the process - including how to access your voucher once you have redeemed it for a supermarket gift card:
UPDATE FOR JANUARY 2021: We are still waiting for clarity regarding the provision of meals to our Free School Meal families for the national lockdown which started on 5th January 2021. As soon as we know more we will be in contact.
