Free School Meals

Did you know that you can apply for Free School Meals for your child at any time throughout the year should your circumstances change?

The form is very straightforward to complete. You can download a copy of the for here or you can also contact our school office who will sent you a copy. If you are eligible and apply this means that the amount of Pupil Equity Funding allocated to the school from Scottish Government may increase. We are certain we have a number of families who will be entitled to this allowance and who may be missing out.  The allowance young people get in school can be used at both interval and lunchtime. The cashless system operated within school means that the allowance is added automatically to their card.

Completed forms should be handed in to any of the following customer service centres:

AYR: Wallace Tower, 172-176 High Street, Ayr, KA7 1PZ
GIRVAN: Customer Service Centre, 17-19 Knockcushan Street, Girvan, KA26 9AQ
MAYBOLE: Customer Service Centre, 64 High Street, Maybole, KA19 7BZ
PRESTWICK: Customer Service Centre, 2-6 The Cross, Prestwick, KA9 1AN
TROON: Customer Service Centre, Municipal Building, South Beach, Troon, KA10 6EJ

Applications can still be posted to: South Ayrshire Council, Benefit Services, PO Box 31, AYR KA7 2PL
