  Provision for supporting children through the summer

Information for parents and carers on summer provision of grants, activities and free school meals.                                                                                                                                                                 

Some organisations have plans for on-line activities, and some have plans for direct engagement and activity, taking into account the current advice on physical distancing. Outdoor activity features in a number of the plans. The details of these activities can be found at the link below and will be updated when new activities are added.

In addition to these activities, Education Services is planning to provide childcare for keyworkers in schools across the city. Parents have had to apply for this childcare through an on-line form. The childcare is to be provided by out of school care providers. The application form can be found at the website below.

 

Free school meals

The government has agreed additional funding to support the provision of free school meals throughout the summer. The footwear and clothing grant payments for 2020/21 will be made in July. Rather than continue the pre-paid cards for Farmfoods, a more flexible approach is to add an additional payment onto the footwear and clothing grant to support families. This cash payment by bank transfer or cheque will offer parents more flexibility. Families will receive £110 for footwear and clothing and an additional £80 as a replacement for free school meals. Those receiving PEEK deliveries, this will continue throughout the summer.

More detailed information about the summer activities can be found at the following website,

This website will be updated throughout the summer.
