Free School Meals

Did you know that claiming your free school meal entitlement benefits the whole school community?

 The Scottish Government allocates additional funding to schools based on the volume of children in each school who claim FSM.  This means for every parent who is entitled to this benefit and claims it by making an annual application through the City of Edinburgh Councils website, the school benefits by receiving additional funding to support the learning and engagement of the whole school community.  Do something positive to help your school, find out more or make an application by clicking the link below.
