Free School Meals
Those in receipt of Free School Meals are receiving support during the Coronavirus crisis.
From now on, there will be two options available for receiving Free School Meals, either a Tesco supermarket voucher or a financial payment made directly into the bank.
Both options have the same financial value, which is £39 per child per fortnight.
Families do not need to contact the Council. All eligible families will receive an e-mail which will include details and instructions.
Payments/vouchers will continue through the summer holidays for all pupils, including those that won’t be attending a Ceredigion school after 17 July 2020 (e.g. Years 11 and 13).
