As you are no doubt aware due to the ongoing Cost of Living Crisis and the pressure this puts on low-income families during the school holidays, Welsh Government have decided to extend the holiday provision offer for those learners who receive free school meals up until the end of February half term 2023 (this will include school holidays in October, December 2022 and February 2023).
Caerphilly County Borough Council will no longer be delivering free school meals to pupils homes during school holidays.
A weekly payment of £19.50 per child (£3.90 per day) will be made to eligible parents / guardians.
The Council’s Catering Service are currently working in partnership with the Post Office to deliver this payment.
Parents will receive correspondence from the Post Office by Friday 4th November with further information about how to claim this payment.
