Free School Meal Vouchers


During this period of school closure, free school meal vouchers are available for pupils of families who meet the qualifying criteria for free school meals, i.e. due to their low household income/benefits entitlement. 

During these challenging times, we do expect that family's situations will change. If you believe your entitlement should be reviewed, please follow the procedure below.



1. View the DCC website's Free School Meals page to check your eligibility and to apply.

2. If you have applied over the phone, or have a confirmation email from applying online you can forward it to info@leys.derbyshire.sch.uk

3. A member of our school office team will confirm the details with the DCC FSM team and then get in contact with you about ordering vouchers.



Voucher Scheme

We are now using the DfE Free School Meal Voucher provider Edenred. This provides our eligible free school meal pupils with a voucher worth £15 a week (£3 per day meal value).
The first batch of Edenred vouchers were sent to eligible families by email, to the email address provided for the scheme as an 'eCode' - a 16 digit code with an assigned voucher value, on the 20th April 2020. (Prior to this date vouchers were issued by Wonde) 

The email contains instructions for how to redeem the eCode, including selecting the preferred supermarket. If a family has more than one child at Leys they will receive one voucher worth the total value for their children, e.g. a £30 voucher for one week for 2 FSM eligible pupils at Leys Junior School.
Please note, the eCode will expire after 1 month and cannot be used to purchase restricted products such as cigarettes and alcohol.

The email also provides a link to the Department for Education's voucher scheme frequently asked questions (FAQs).
