Cutting the Cost of the School Day
When children and young people cannot take part in opportunities because of cost it is harder for them to achieve and be happy at school.
We will work with schools to ensure policies on uniform, extra-curricular activities and events do not create barriers for pupils from lower income families, making sure all pupils can fully participate in their education.
Carmarthenshire County Council’s Food Hubs
Carmarthenshire County Council worked with local suppliers to set up food hubs during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic. As well as providing food for children usually in receipt of free school meals, the Plaid Cymru-led Council also provided food for the children’s families. This support was extended to cover the Easter and Summer breaks.
