What’s happening about Free School Meals?

We are now working with Edenred UK which is delivering supermarket vouchers on behalf of the DfE to families with free school meal entitlement. If you are entitled to receive vouchers, you will receive this support;

  • In the form of an eCode that you can redeem online from a selection of supermarket ‘eGift cards’ if the school has a working email address for you, or;
  • If you do not have an email address or access to the internet, we will print off the voucher, or ‘eGift card’, and post it to your home address, or arrange a collection if easy and safe to do so.

How do I access work for students?

Resources are available on Show My Homework (SmH) to support St John’s students studying at home.

  • If you have any difficulty accessing SmH, email our ICT Helpdesk  ICTHelpdesk@stjohns.excalibur.org.uk.
  • All students and parents should have access to Show My Homework. More information about logging in to Show My Homework is located here.
  • Students should also check their emails daily.
