From Friday 3 April we have in place new arrangements to send PayPoint vouchers directly to parents/carers of children who are entitled to free school meals.

These will replace the 'take and go' lunches that have been available from our emergency childcare hubs and some other schools. These lunches will not be available for collection after 3 April.

Parents/carers of eligible children do not need to apply for this payment.

A £30 voucher will be sent to you on a fortnightly basis using the mobile phone numbers or email addresses we already hold for you. If we don't have your number or email we will post the vouchers to you.

The first £30 payments will be made on Friday 3 April, covering weeks commencing 30 March and 6 April.

A second payment will be made on Thursday 9 April (as Friday 10 April is a public holiday), covering weeks beginning 13 and 20 April.

Advance payments will continue every fortnight thereafter from Friday 24 April.

Scottish Government guidelines suggest that payments should reflect what councils charge for school lunches. As the cost of a school lunch in South Lanarkshire is £1.70, the £30 fortnightly payment considerably exceeds that. The payment is also in line with the UK Government’s £15 a week vouchers system.

Payments will be made only to those entitled to means-tested free school meals. This includes children in Primaries 1 to 3, who will be assessed for free school meal entitlement. Again, this is in line with Scottish Government guidelines.

For more information on eligibility see the Free school meals page.

The payment vouchers can be redeemed for cash at any PayPoint outlet, of which there are more than 100 across South Lanarkshire. Parents/carers can then purchase food for children, bearing in mind current advice on limiting excursions and social distancing.

For details of PayPoint outlets see the PayPoint website.

Payments will be made automatically using information held by the council, so applications are not necessary. However, contact details can be updated and other enquiries can be sent by using the Free school meals enquiry form.



COVID-19 - Community Wellbeing Line

A new helpline is now available for individuals living in South Lanarkshire who are self-isolating/vulnerable and whose usual support network is no longer available.

The helpline will help people to access food and other essential supplies. The Community Engagement Team within the council have been working along with VASLAN to collate activity which is happening within communities, and to make contact with new groups and networks which are developing in response to the current situation.

Community volunteers are playing a key role in supporting the people around them. This includes helping transport essential goods such as food to people who cannot leave their home, carrying out welfare checks where there was a concern expressed about the wellbeing of someone, and offering telephone befriending to those who are isolated.

The helpline number is 0303 123 1009 and the opening hours are as follows:-

Monday to Thursday 8.45 – 4.45

Friday 8.45 – 4.15

Saturday and Sunday 8.45 – 4.45

If you have any questions about the helpline please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are seeking volunteers!

This year we have a new uniform supplier.

ALJ Industrial Supplies

18 Bloomgate

Below is their latest communication with us:

Due to the current coronavirus situation we will be unable to hold P7 Blazer Fitting evenings at the Carluke, Biggar High or Lanark Grammar, or attend any of the P1 Intake Days at the Primary Schools.

As this is such an important and exciting time for the new P1 & S1 pupils we are doing all we can to keep the transition period and the supply of uniform flowing smoothly for them.

Within the current guidelines being issued from the Scottish Government today, we will be operating on an appointment only basis (one customer only per appointment time and everwhere cleaned between appointments) for essential orders, between the hours of 11am and 3pm. This will allow us to conform to Social Distancing requirements.

Our Online Shop will also be available for ordering.

Any updates on opening hours etc will be posted on our Facebook page and web site, and we will always be available should you need to get in contact with us.
