Free School Meal Vouchers for Summer Holidays

Covid-19 Summer Food Fund

Tesco Shopping Vouchers have been posted to families in receipt of Free School Meals for the 6 week period 20 July to 28 August (inclusive).  Parents will receive a voucher for £90  (6 x £15), for each qualifying child. Year 11s and year 13s, who have officially left the Academy, will also get this allocation.  

Some parents have expressed concerns about  their vouchers not being accepted in Tesco and have been told that there is zero balance on them, or that they can’t be scanned. If there is an issue when scanning your voucher, there is a code on the voucher which can be entered manually by the cashier.

If you do have any issues at the till, please go to the stores Customer Services to ask them to check the validity of the voucher.

You do not need to spend all £90 on one shopping trip. Please keep your till receipt for a record of your balance. Alternatively, you check your balance by phoning 03450 757757 (local call rate/included in mobile contract minutes).

For any queries relating to Free School Meals Vouchers, please email enquiries@bulwellacademy.org.uk
