National Voucher System

Have your eCode?

The Department for Education have now released a national voucher scheme, which we will be taking part in from Monday 20th April.
What does this mean for you?
  1. The voucher amount will change to £15 a week.
  2. The process to claim your voucher will also slightly change. You will now receive an “eGift code”, which you will need to enter on the website to choose your voucher.
  3. There is more choice of supermarkets and this can be changed for each voucher.
  4. You will receive the vouchers/eCode via email only from the 20th April.  However, as this is a new system which many schools will be using there may be a delay in receiving the first voucher.
  5. Further information can be found on this page, including a frequently asked questions document on the left.

If you have any problems please email for support.
