FSM Voucher Scheme

Most of you should have received FSM Supermarket Voucher to cover two weeks.  The third batch will cover two weeks in total but there is a delay with this batch. The system is still struggling to process all the vouchers, we are hopeful this batch will process before Thursday.


For those who haven't received any ecodes, if you haven't done so already please email me directly on


If you are eligible for this scheme, you will receive an email this week, which contains a 16-digit eCode and a link to the redemption. 


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
  • presenting a paper copy of the voucher

Families are free to select the most appropriate food and drink for their child. When selecting products, we encourage families to consider health and nutrition. The School Food Standards may act as a useful guide for families.


The vouchers should not be redeemed for any age-restricted items, such as alcohol, cigarettes or lottery tickets.

There are a number of online resources available to support families in preparing healthy and nutritious food, including on the NHS Eat Well website.


Further details regarding how eCodes can be redeemed are available in the parents/carer's FAQ document.


If you have any questions, please contact 

Latest News

29/04/2020 - The next lot of vouchers have been emailed, these are to cover last week and this week.  Please ensure to redeemed them soon.  The next batch has been processed and will cover 4 weeks for the whole of May.




New supermarkets coming on board

  • Aldi eGift cards are now available for parents/ carers to redeem as of today (27th April)
  • McColls will be joining from Wednesday this week (29th April) and can be spent in McColls and Martin’s stores



Expiry dates for eCodes

The expiry date for all new eCodes being sent from today will now be 4 months after the delivery date. For eCodes already sent, they have now also had their expiry dates extended, so they will also now expire 4 months after the original delivery date.


If you have not received eCodes you have ordered, please check your ‘junk’ folders before contacting Edenred.


We have had some reports of parents receiving a 16-digit eCode by post and taking these into supermarkets to try and spend them. As a reminder, supermarkets cannot accept eCodes, parents must first exchange them online for supermarket eGift cards
