The Department of Education has made temporary arrangements relating to provision of free school meals for eligible children who cannot attend school because of the coronavirus outbreak.  A financial payment of £2.70 per child per day is provided fortnightly through a direct payments scheme run by the EA which has been contacting parents.   This arrangement will last for up to 30 days with effect from 26th March 2020.
