Free School Meals during School Closure

Letters have been sent to all families who are in receipt of Free School Meals advising them that as a result of school closures due to the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, a payment will be made to their bank account as your child will no longer receive Free School Meals.

Mrs Jack our development officer has been trying to get in touch with all families to check they got the letter and have received payment.

Please also see Frequently Asked Questions and if you still need support please contact  admin@craigmount.edin.sch.uk someone will get back in touch

Information on Free School Meals & School Wear

Part of our school funding is based on the number of students claiming Free School Meals.  Therefore, all students benefit from families claiming their Free School Meal entitlement. So, please apply if you think you might be eligible.

We understand that sometimes students might not want to eat lunch in the school canteen.  Nevertheless, for the reason given above, it is important that their Free School Meal entitlement is claimed.  Please note that the lunch credit can also be used for purchases made during morning interval.

The application system has changed recently and parents will no longer have to reapply for the Free School Meals and Clothing Grant each year.  It will be assumed that unless your circumstances have changed, your entitlement will continue.  Some parents may receive reminders to reapply for the coming year.  If so, please apply as soon as possible in order that your entitlement starts at the beginning of term.

All students who are eligible for Free School Meals automatically receive the Clothing Grant (£100 paid directly into parents bank account)
