free school meals

 

Can we please remind parents / carers that entitlement to free school meals only applies to the academic year in which you apply and will cease at the end of June that year.  As a goodwill gesture our school kitchen have been providing free school meals to those pupils who had applied for session 2017-18 to allow parents / carers sufficient time to reapply for session 2018-19.

We would advise you however that with effect from Thursday 30th August the school kitchen will be unable to provide a free school meal to any pupil who is not on the current register.  If you have not already made an application for the current academic year may we recommend that you do so as soon as possible as your child will be charged.  You may like to send your child to school with a packed lunch until confirmation is received of entitlement.

To register for free school meals you need to follow this link www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals

This information does not apply to current P1 – P3 pupils who are entitlement to free school meals without having to make an application.

Finally, please see the attached note with regard to guidance on free school meal entitlement and Pupil Equity Funding.
