We believe from Posts on the “Education Authority Twitter Account”, that they will be making payments of £2.70/child /day for all families currently eligible for Free School Meals. Payments will be made directly into bank accounts on a fortnightly basis and will continue over the Easter Holidays. For those families for whom the Education Authority does not have bank details they will send a text to you to direct you to their website where there will be a form to complete. Please be aware with phone coverage in our area, texts may not reach you and you may need to follow up directly with the Education Authority.
For anyone finding their circumstances may have changed below is the link for downloading the form for applying for Free School Meals.
