Families receiving Free School Meals/Payments
Please see message below we have received for the families in receipt of Free School Meals. If you think you may be now eligible for Free School Meals, please apply using the below link. All information on who is eligible can be found by clicking this link.
Welsh Government have confirmed that payments are to be made to pupils in receipt of Free School Meals during the following periods of time –
- School holidays.
- If you child is instructed by Welsh Government to stay at home for periods other than school holidays.
- If your child is instructed to self-isolate for 14 days because of a positive case of COVID at their school.
Payments are not being made for any other reason.
In terms of the processing of payments, they are being processed in batches to comply with audit requirements and this sometimes leads to families receiving payments at different times and delays in their receipt. We are respectfully asking families to be patient and assuring them that we are working as quickly as possible to complete all payments due. Again we ask you as schools to convey the same message.
