The eVoucher is sent to parent’s email address, you can then spend it instore by presenting your mobile, showing the email with the eVoucher or a print out of the voucher.
We will be emailing parents, who we hold email addresses via ParentMail, next week, week beginning 19th July 2021, with the cheque number and validation code for their child(ren). Please check your emails to ensure that you have received it.
For parents who we do not have email addresses: a SMS text will be sent out next week, week beginning 19th July 2021, to the mobile number you have registered with ParentMail, with the cheque number and validation code for their child(ren).
Vouchers codes will be valid until 30 September 2021, there will be no extensions to this date.
If you normally have your vouchers printed by Mrs Bowater, these will be available for collection next week. Mrs Bowater will send a text message when they are ready for collection, hopefully on Wednesday 21st July 2021.
If you require assistance, school will print out the vouchers(s) for you, please contact Mrs Bowater at the School Office, if you require this service.
