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.
