Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?
Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning.

How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?
Please visit the East Lothian Council website to check your eligibility and download an application form.

Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.

This year we celebrate Haddington. 2018 will mark 700 years since the Bruce Charter – the oldest document in East Lothian Archives. While we know Haddington had already been a burgh for almost 200 years we are using the anniversary of the charter to bring together a whole host of events. Celebrating all aspects of history, culture and community we aim to make it a year to remember.

Learn more about the project and the charter and see how you can help make Haddington ‘buzz’ in 2018.

Information about the Opening Day on Saturday 20 January 2018 is now available.
