Below are some FAQs to give you some more detail on how the scheme works. At the top of the page is a form you can use to order vouchers, hard copies of which are available by the PTA box near the school office.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the scheme work?
Instead of paying for your shopping by credit/debit card or cash, you pay with a gift card or vouchers purchased from the PTA. The PTA receives a commission for purchasing gift vouchers/gift cards. The PTA receives the following commission - Sainsbury’s £4, Tesco £5 and John Lewis/Waitrose £7.50 for every £100 of vouchers ordered.
The scheme runs for the 12 months of the year.
How does it work at Tesco?
For Tesco you are issued with electronic gift cards for each order which are available in £20 and £50 denominations to the value of your order. These cards can be used in all Tesco stores, Tesco petrol stations, Tesco Direct, Entertainment and Wine by the Case.
How does it work at Sainsbury’s?
For Sainsbury’s you are issued with an electronic gift card for your first order. For subsequent orders this gift card is remotely topped up each month to the value of your order. This gift card can be used in-store.
How does it work at John Lewis/Waitrose?
For John Lewis you are issued with paper vouchers in £10, £25 or £50 denominations for each order to the value of your order. These vouchers can be used in-store at John Lewis and Waitrose, and can also be used online at johnlewis.com and waitrose.com. Change is given in-store if you don’t spend the whole amount.

Please note the scheme runs for 12 months a year. However we do not take delivery of physical vouchers in the month of August, so we can only do the Sainsbury’s top ups as these are done remotely. This means for those of you ordering John Lewis or Tesco vouchers you have the option of setting up a standing order each year up to July or if you prefer an open ended one. If you opt for an open ended standing order, we will give double vouchers in September.
Can my order be amended?
We will always try to accommodate amendments and we would greatly appreciate any additional one off orders e.g. extra at Christmas time/wedding gift/one off purchase. Payment for these could be via cheque or bank transfer. Please contact us and advise as soon as possible of any issues and we will try and help if we can, our aim is to make the administration as smooth as possible.
When will I be able to collect my vouchers?
Your vouchers will be available for collection from school and we will require a signature to confirm that you have received your vouchers. We will email you to tell you when they are ready for collection. If you do not collect from school we will make alternative collection arrangements.
Please note we will not be able to send vouchers home with the children.
Who do I contact with any questions about my order?
The vouchers team are Sally Myers and Jacque Purnell. They are at school most days or can be contacted at LCPSVouchers@gmail.com
