Free School Meals
Midlothian Council have now set up a BACS payment for all Secondary pupils S1-S6 entitled to FSM. Households where there are Secondary age children and younger siblings, will receive payments for all children.
This will be processed as a 4 week period direct to families, the first run will be from Monday 6th April to Friday 1st May and then processed in subsequent 4 week periods. The first payment will be in parents accounts on 9/4/20.
Families with children only in Primary schools will not receive the payment but will continue to receive food if they have opted to do so.
All Primary children who have been receiving school lunches will continue to do so over the Easter two week break.
If you are entitled to the payment but do not receive this as expected, please contact us by email (Stemail@example.com) in the first instance.
Any family that is having trouble accessing their funds, leaving the house or has received a shielding letter should contact Woodburn Hub on 0131 271 4715 or should email the school office (Stfirstname.lastname@example.org) and Mrs McPherson will be in touch.
