Highland pupils, eligible for free school meals, to receive vouchers if they are asked to self-isolate

Highland school pupils asked to self-isolate from school during term time, through Test & Protect, who are eligible to receive means-tested free school meals, will receive vouchers to cover their isolation period.

The Council will automatically pay £15 per pupil per week. Vouchers are paid to P1-3 pupils in receipt of school clothing grants and P4-S6 pupils in receipt of free school meals.

Highland Council’s Welfare Support Team can support low income families who may be eligible to apply but have not already claimed free school meals and school clothing grants.

They can be contacted on 0800 090 1004 or by email to welfare.support@highland.gov.uk
