We have had a few enquiries about free school means as many families have found themselves in rapidly changing situations.
Free school meals are being issued in the form of vouchers which can be used in the shops.
Food vouchers will be provided to those who are eligible (see criteria here: https://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/education-and-childcare/school-life/apply-free-school-meals) for free school meals, not including the universal provision in P1-3.
To clarify: P1-3 children who do not meet the eligibility criteria in the link above will not be awarded the vouchers.
We hope this helps clarify the situation for our families
