Grants for Pupils

Many pupils qualify for Free School Meals. In addition, those pupils eligible for Free School Meals who are about to start secondary school in September may also be eligible for a Welsh Government School Uniform Grant. If you feel you are eligible please contact Monmouthshire County Council via the links below for further details and an application form.

Parents living within Newport City Council should apply via the Monmouthshire link for Free School Meals and via the Newport link for a Uniform Grant.

Once approved, pupils eligible for Free School Meals have their catering account automatically credited and may use the canteen in the usual way.  Pupils need to remain within their budgeted allowance, however.  Both our finger scanning system and our swipe card system ensure that pupils eligible for Free School Meals are not identified separately from those pupils who are not eligible.
