Free School Meals

Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?

Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning.

How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?

Please visit our website www.eastlothian.gov.uk  to check your eligibility and download an application form.

Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.

Instrumental Instruction Parents Evening

Parents and carers of pupils who receive instrumental instruction at the school are invited to a parents evening on Wednesday 7 February.

The evening will run from 6.00-8.30pm, although available times may vary from one instructor to another.  The meetings will take place in Music Rooms 1 and 2.

Appointment sheets will be available from Monday 15th January, posted up on the instructors’ teaching room doors.  Pupils should sign up for a suitable time.

If this evening is not convenient, please do not hesitate to telephone Ms Wilson in order that, where possible, an update on your son / daughter’s progress can be arranged.
