FSM Update – Edenred

We have now successfully set up all free school meal families on the Government system Edenred.
You will receive a £15 voucher per student each week. Starting next week 20th April. If the school had a current working email address for you, or you have recently passed us your email address you will receive an activation code that you then need to activate to claim your voucher for your chosen supermarket.
It may be worth checking your junk items for the email.
Further help and guidance is available from here: https://www.edenred.co.uk/reward-recipients/Free-School-Meal-Vouchers/
If we do not have an email address for you, the school will act as administrators and post the vouchers, these will have a two week value. Please be aware that there is potentially delays with the postal service.
If you have any queries regarding this system, please email office@magnusacademy.co.uk
Top Tips for using Edenred:
– Use Google Chrome if possible.
– Copy and paste activation codes… don’t type them in.
– If you have had previous codes activated and a new one is now not working, you may need to delete browser history.
It is also worth noting it has been widely reported that the government scheme is struggling to cope with demand, which is one of the reasons we supplied ASDA vouchers over the Easter period. The system does appear to be responding more quickly and improving each day.

Coronavirus Update – Free School Meals

Due to the possible future and sudden closure of the local Subway the school has now obtained Asda food vouchers for all students/families entitled to free school meals, the vouchers are for the value of £20 and are to cover a two week period.

The vouchers will be available for collection from main reception tomorrow (24th March 2020) from 9am to 12pm. We will be observing strict social distancing rules during collection which are as follows:

  • Only one person will be allowed to enter the school reception at a time, please wait outside the school observing the 2 metre distance rules
  • Once you have been admitted through to reception, please stand behind the barrier and confirm student name and postcode
  • Once the voucher has been placed on the table please collect and leave reception promptly – using the hand sanitizer provided
  • Site staff will be disinfecting door handles throughout the collection times

It is envisaged that these vouchers will be issued every two weeks following this, please keep checking our usual communication points for further notices. Please note you can still use the subway vouchers until they close.
