Free School Meals 

 Free School Meals are offered to all children from Primary 1 to 5. 

 

Free school meal entitlement 

Perth and Kinross Council are encouraging parents and carers with children in P6 or P7 to check if they are entitled to free school meals for their children. This is worth over £420 per annum! Free school meal provision is confidential and school systems maintain the anonymity of children and families
