Another free school meal payment is being made to qualifying Dundee families.

Around 6,000 children will be covered by the scheme, which is paying £11.25 per eligible child for the week from Monday January 25 to Friday January 29.

Payments will go into bank accounts on Monday January 25.

Eligibility is for nursery children included on a housing benefit/council tax reduction claim and pupils in P1-3 who receive the school clothing grant. Payments will be made for pupils from P4 to S6 based on free school meal entitlement.

Children and families service convener Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “I am pleased that this scheme is continuing, as this is making a big difference to families across our city.

 “Several parents have got in touch with us to share their appreciation of this valuable support while schools are closed to most pupils.”
