Free School Meals

Please be aware that in light of the UK and Scottish Government’s decision last night to begin a three week lockdown in order to delay the spread of the Coronavirus, the Highland Council has taken the decision to cancel free school meals today.

The current provision would involve staff and children gathering at school premises and this would go against national advice and directives.

The Council’s Strategic Group will consider the announcement first this morning and the implications this will have for delivery of essential services and the provision of welfare and humanitarian aid in a way that complies with the Government’s directive and protects life and our NHS services.

More information will be issued once this important step has been discussed with our Local and Regional Resilience Partners.
