The Welsh Government are offering grants of £125 to buy school uniform, equipment, sports kit and kit for activities outside of school for your child.
If your child is eligible for free school meals you can apply for this grant for the 2019/20 school year, if they are:
- entering reception class or year 3 in primary school
- entering year 7 or year 10 in secondary school
- aged 4, 7, 11 or 14 in special schools, special needs resource bases or pupil referral units
For Year 7 learners the grant is £200, recognising the increased costs associated with starting secondary school.
Funding for looked-after children is available in every school year.
