Important Information: Covid-19
Rushden Academy are now using the national scheme Edenred to provide supermarket vouchers for pupils entitled to receiving free school meals. Unfortunately, there have been delays to all schools because the system has been overwhelmed by requests. However, we are hopeful that the issues have now started to be ironed out and families eligible for these vouchers should check both their inbox and junk mail folder. For those families who we have organised gift cards to deliver to them, we have now received the order for the 2nd week of the Easter break and we will look to deliver these to your address by the end of this week.
As we will no longer be providing hamper collections as organised prior to the Easter break, we have placed our latest order to cover the next 4 weeks. From the 20th April to the week beginning the 11th May inclusive. Eligible families should therefore receive an e-code for £60 for each child or multiples of.
Please make sure on receiving your e-code that you do redeem these by going to the Edenred website:
We will of course deliver this next batch of redeemed vouchers to those families where we have no current e-mail address as soon as possible.
Please be aware that these vouchers have an expiry date of 1 month.
Please contact your relevant Head of Year if you have any concerns or have not received the FSM vouchers you are eligible for. If you decide not to use the vouchers can you also contact your relevant Head of Year to confirm this in order that we can remove you from the ordering process. We will endeavour to resolve any issues as soon as possible.
*** Update ***
The Academy has placed its summer order for free school meal vouchers with Edenred. The delivery date for ecodes to arrive in your e-mail inbox is Friday 10th July.
Should you have any issues with this latest order please contact the school from Monday 13th July so that we can resolve this prior to the end of the school year on Friday 17th July.
