Free school meals and clothing grants update

Last updated:  25 March 2022

  • Payments are only to parents/carers where a pupil is eligible for Free School Meals because of low income.
  • Where a pupil is currently not eligible for Free School Meals and you think they may be eligible, you must apply. (You apply for a Clothing Grant using the same form as for Free School Meals.)
  • We’ve been reopening our primary school lunch halls on a phased basis to offer P1-P7 pupils two hot meal options and one cold meal option. Hot meals are also available in our high schools.
