Frequently asked questions/ Common issues

Why have I not received my 16 digit ecode from the Academy?

  • First check your junk mail
  • Then call the Academy to check we have your most current email address

The Academy sends all eligible email addresses to Edenred who then generate the codes. It is very important we have your current details, so the vouchers can be sent to you promptly.

I have my 16 digit ecode but I cannot enter it on www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk

  • This website is very busy due to thousands of people accessing it every day. There may be up to a 2 hour wait before you are able to enter your code. Try redeeming your voucher early in the morning (between 5am-8am) or after 9pm when there are fewer people using the website.

What do I do if I try the above and I still cannot redeem my voucher?

The Academy is only able to resend your ecode.
