Clothing Grants & Free School Meals

01 June 2020

As we prepare for the new school session, we would like to update you with some important information regarding Clothing Grants and Free School Meals shared with us by the Glasgow City Council Grants Team.

Automatic payments

Any parents/guardians who are eligible for an automatic payment will receive their payment the first 2 weeks in July.

Parents/guardians who received a Grant last year but were not automatically entitled will receive a declaration form in the post, which should be completed and returned to the GCC Grants Team.

Anyone who does not receive an automatic payment or a declaration form in the post must make a new application.

Further information & application forms

Full information on Clothing Grants and Free School meals can be found on the GCC website’s Clothing Grants and Free School Meals page.

Application forms will be available online from the start of July, for anyone who has not been issued with an automatic payment.

The quickest and easiest way for Parents/guardians to apply is via the online application form on the GCC Clothing Grants and Free School Meals page after it becomes available in July. For anyone who does not have internet access, a paper form will also be available on the website for printing. If you require a paper copy of this form, please contact the school after July to request a paper copy.

Processing timescales

Applicants must allow 4 weeks from submission before contacting the Grants Team to enquire about an application that has been submitted.

Any enquiries to the team will be responded to within 10 working days from submission.

Contacting the Grants Team

Parent/guardian enquiries – these should be submitted via the online Grants enquiry form  on the Glasgow City Council website 


Parents/Guardians should utilise the online form for enquiries, however if you do not have internet access, you can dial 0141 276 1177 where enquiries will be logged by a GCC call handler and passed to the team for action.
