Free School Meals

To check your eligibility for Free School Meals please visit this GOV.UK page.

Families with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) should use this form to apply for temporary free school meals.

For parents of children eligible for free school meals:

A few weeks ago you will have received vouchers which were purchased through the Saint Ralph Sherwin multi academy trust through a company named Sodexo. These vouchers covered the days up to and including Tuesday 14 April.

Since then the government have issued guidance for all schools to use a company they have contracted nationally named Edenred who will issue vouchers in a similar manner.

Unfortunately there have been some issues with this company who have struggled to cope with the demand from schools.

We are in the process of applying to Edenred for a four week voucher for each child which we will be sending out to you as soon as we possibly can. This will cover this week plus the following three weeks during which the government have announced the lockdown will continue.

Please accept our apologies that the vouchers are not with you already, this has been an issue for schools nationally. Please also be assured that we will continue to work with Edenred to ensure the matter is resolved as a matter of urgency.

In the meantime if you have any urgent concern or issue please do not hesitate to contact us on

Kind regards,
Kevin Gritton.
