MIKE HEDGES AM URGES PARENTS TO CHECK IF THEY ARE ELIGIBLE FOR HELP WITH THE COSTS OF SCHOOL UNIFORMS.
Mike Hedges said….’ At the start of a new term there are all sorts of extra costs for parents and some parents might be eligible for help in the costs of uniforms and some types of equipment. I would urge parents to check to see if they are eligible. Please contact Swansea Council Education Dept.’

Looked-after children and learners eligible for free school meals will be eligible for this grant if they are entering reception class in primary school, entering year 7 in secondary school or aged 4 or 11 in special schools, Special Educational Needs (SEN) Units or Pupil Referral Units.
