Free School Meals and Family Pandemic Payments

You may be aware that the Scottish Government have announced a phased expansion of Free School Meals. This includes the provision of FSM during school holiday periods throughout 21-22 (commencing July 2021) and the universal provision of FSM to Primary 4 and 5 children during school terms (commencing August 2021 and January 2022 respectively). A further Family Pandemic Payment of £100 will also be paid to families for each child eligible for means tested FSM this summer.

Details on both the expansion of FSM payments during school holiday periods and the £100 Family Pandemic Payment are attached and available on the SLC website – Financial support for parents/carers – South Lanarkshire Council.
