The Welsh Government have now announced their school uniform grant for this coming September. It is similar to last year’s arrangements (i.e. for children going into Reception, Year 3, Year 7 or Year 10 in September 2020, and currently entitled to free school meals, but not those who are only transitionally protected).
Note that the grant only covers Reception and Year 7 in special schools and Pupil Referral Units, and Reception to Year 11 for Looked After Children attending Swansea schools.
The grant is £200 for Year 7 and £125 for the other year groups.
School uniform grant applications can be made from 13 July for children currently entitled to free school meals going into Reception and Years 3, 7 and 10. Eligible parents/carers will be contacted by the local authority closer to this date with details on how they can apply.
