Easter holiday payments will be made for children from lower income families following the extension of Welsh Government Free School Meal provision.
Funding of £9million has been announced for eligible pupils across Wales until the end of May half term, including all bank holidays during this period.
Pembrokeshire County Council will make a BACS payment of £39 each child for the Easter holiday period directly into their parents/carers’ bank accounts on Monday 3rd April.
The funding allows for £19.50 per week (£3.90 per day) for every eligible young person.
This provision only applies to those learners that are eligible for free school meals using the current benefit criteria and does not extend to those pupils only accessing the Universal Primary Free School Meal (UPFSM) offer.
Children in full time nursey, reception, Year 1 or Year 2, automatically qualify for UPFSM but it is important if you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit to still apply for free school meals so that other funding can be accessed.
More information and application forms are available on Pembrokeshire County Council’s website, from your child’s school or by telephoning 01437 764551.
