My School Fund

My School Fund

My School Fund is an exciting initiative that combines the spending power of parents, guardians and carers in order to boost nurseries budgets. By registering, you can link your spend to your child’s nursery. For every £1 spent in store, 1% will go to the nursery and 2% will go to the parent (terms and conditions apply). This cashback is redeemed in the form of eGift Cards that can be accessed by logging into your account on the My School Fund website.

Visit the My School Fund homepage and select the section for parents. Complete the form with the relevant information and be sure to link to your child’s school. Once your account has been verified, you will need to add your personal debit card (protected by bank level encryption, no CSV or CVV are asked for).
