Back on April 7th we reported that families with children on free school meals would be paid directly into their bank accounts. In Denbighshire, 3,500 children are eligible (1,900 families) for free school meals

Following the announcement of the free school meals funding made by Education Minister Kirsty Williams AM last week, the Council will be increasing the amount of the direct payment for free school meals from the current £15 per child, per week to £19.50 as of Monday, 4 May.

Meanwhile, the Council is still in the process of processing a small number of applications – please bear with us, the funding will be made available very soon.
