A reminder of some important changes to Free School Meals payments:

Parents and guardians of children entitled to Free School Meals are being reminded of important upcoming changes to the way the meals are paid. The current system of vouchers redeemable at Tesco stores is valid up to and including Friday 1st May.
However, from Monday 4th May, your Free School Meal entitlement will be paid by bank transfer, for the two weeks up to Friday 15th May.
The rate is £3.90 per day, per child. For the Council to pay this money, they must have your bank account details.

All those entitled to Free School Meals should have received a letter from PCC about the changes, included in this letter is a request for your bank details. It is very important that you give your bank details as soon as you can, as PCC will not be able to get the money to you without them.

If you haven’t had a letter, or you need another one, please email fsmpayments@pembrokeshire.gov.uk, or telephone 01437 775250 as soon as possible.
Please ensure ALL details on the form, including National Insurance number, are completed before returning. Diolch
