We hope you have all had a lovely summer break. A reminder that Ysgol Rhosnesni reopens to all students on Friday 2nd September.
We have also been asked by the LA to communicate the information below to all families.
Financial help available for more learners in Wrexham
From September, more learners in Wrexham will receive additional financial support. Whether it’s help with school uniform and equipment costs through the Pupil Development Grant, free school meals for all of Wrexham’s Reception class pupils, or free school meals for all ages to those eligible.
So, as the new term approaches, we are urging parents to apply for the support they’re entitled to.
Does your child already receive free school meals?
If your child currently receives Free School Meals, you may also be entitled to additional help through the Pupil Development Grant, which includes financial support for uniform, sports equipment and devices. To access this year’s scheme visit Pupil Development Grant (PDG) | Wrexham County Borough Council.
Has your financial situation changed in the last year?
If your child is not currently receiving Free School Meals, but your circumstances have changed this year, Wrexham might have support available for you. To check if you are eligible for Free School Meals, visit Free school meals | Wrexham County Borough Council.If you are eligible, you may also be able to receive the Pupil Development Grant.
Cllr Phil Wynn, Lead Member for Education, said: “If you feel you may be eligible for Free School Meals, I urge you to visit our website and apply. If your application is successful, may also be able to access the Pupil Development Grant, which is an important step in stopping money getting in the way of children’s education. We urge anyone who feels they are eligible to get in touch with us to support parents and learners through the school year.”
