Free School Meals and Clothing Grants
Pupils in S1 – S6 may be entitled to receive a clothing grant and free school meal.
Free school meals alone could save you approximately £290 per child per academic year. We operate a ‘cashless’ system within the school where pupils use prepaid accounts. All free meal monies will be credited to your child’s cashless catering account meaning complete privacy and discretion.
You have to apply for this every academic year.
Cards can be used before the school begins and at morning interval for breakfast as well as at lunchtime. They are not restricted to lunches.

If you have any difficulties please contact the school for support.
