Free school meal payments for Christmas holiday period

Free School Meals Payment December 2020

I am writing to advise that the Council will be making free school meal payments over the Christmas holiday period for pupils whose parent(s) or guardian(s) are in receipt of certain benefits which entitles their child to a free school meal.

Currently all children in primaries 1-3 receive a free school meal due to Scottish Government policy. However, only those families who would be eligible for a free school meal because of the benefits they receive will be able to get the payment. We would encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible to apply for this payment as soon as possible.

To find out if you are eligible to apply, please visit the web page below:

All applications should be made no later than Thursday 10 December 2020 in order to receive payment in time for the Christmas holiday period.

The payment made for each child whose family qualify for free school meals will be £2.25 per day of the holiday period which based on 12 days holiday, amounts to £27 per child.

Please note, if you have already made an application for a free school meal in the 20/21 academic session then there is no need to apply again.

If you have any queries in relation to applying for free school meals, please contact 0300 300 0300.

Yours sincerely
Steven Quinn
Director of Children’s Services

Happy holidays Primary 1

I know it may not feel like it with the weather outside but today marks our final day of home learning before the Summer holidays!

First of all I would like to say an absolutely huge thank you and well done to all the parents and carers of the P1 children, you have been superstars over the past few months helping your child to learn at home!

Also a huge thank you to the children, I have absolutely loved being their teacher this year and have missed them so much over the past 13 weeks! I cannot wait to see them in August and hope they have a fantastic summer holidays.

I have put together a wee video for them, which I hope they enjoy watching and remembering all the fun we have had this year 🙂

If you have any questions or they would like to share things they are doing over the holidays feel free to send messages in here and I will see them at some point over the 6 weeks 🙂

HWB Activities 25.06.20

Hello Everyone,

It’s almost the summer holidays, and today will be my last HWB post on Dojo and the blog for this year.  I hope you have had fun trying all the tasks this year and that they have helped you with your emotions during lockdown.

Activity 1

Create your own ‘coronacoaster’ to explore your feelings during lockdown and as we are starting to find our way back to normal.

Below are a couple of links to explain this further and to give you some inspiration.

Activity 2

Explain to your family about emotion works and how we use it in school.

Watch the video link below, answer questions and discuss it with an adult. There is also a counting challenge so you have to take a close look at the video.

Enjoy and happy thinking everyone,

Miss Cunningham
