A number of years ago, now, the Scottish Government put in place an initiative whereby children in Primaries 1, 2 and 3 were to, and still do, receive a school meal free of charge. For children from Primaries 4 to 7, the system is different. Some parents may have to pay for their child to have a school meal. The current price of a school meal is £2.10. Some parents may be eligible for free school meals. To claim free school meals for your child(ren) you must complete the form which I have shown below. You will see that there is a section which explains who is eligible to claim for free school meals. I have also placed, beneath the form a link so that you can download a form and complete it, if you wish to make application for free school meals.
If you require further information about free school meals, you can enquire at Aberdeen City Council or ask Riverbank’s Office Staff.
