What is a Clothing Grant?

A Clothing Grant is a grant awarded to children from families on a low income to help towards the cost of clothing and footwear.

The grant is £100 per pupil.  Payments are made by BACS to your nominated bank account, or by cheque, where necessary.

What are Free School Meals?

A free School Meal is a school lunch provided free of charge by Shetland Islands Council to children from families on a low income. All pupils in Primary 1 to Primary 3 are now eligible for free School meals, however these pupils should still be included on your application form if you wish to apply for Free School Milk and / or a Clothing Grant.  Children attending Early Learning and Childcare Settings as part of the expanded provision are also eligible for Free School Meals and families should apply as detailed below.
