  • Funding for looked-after children is available in every school year but they must attend a school in Powys

Powys staff will check all current free school meal awards to establish if each child is eligible for the grant payment.  New free school meal applications will also be checked for grant eligibility.

Not every child receiving free school meals is eligible for the grant.

If your child is transferring to a school outside Powys, please apply to the authority that maintains the school.

If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, but are not currently claiming, please complete a free school meal application form here.

For further enquiries please call 01597827462 (please note we will not take bank details over the phone).

The fund will cover school uniform, other clothing worn at school such as sports kits, equipment for out-of-school-hours trips (including outdoor learning) and equipment for activities within the curriculum such as design and technology.

The scheme also includes the purchase of IT equipment, laptop and tablet only, where the school is unable to loan equipment to the family.

Only one grant per academic year can be awarded.
