Financial Support and Advice
I am the current Primary 4 teacher and one of the Nurture Teachers at Longstone Primary School. I have been working alongside our parents and families for a few years now and I thought now would be the ideal time to let you know where to go if you need any support during this uncertain time.
Whether you have questions about finance, income, benefits e.g free school meal payments then I can either signpost you to the right place or help answer your questions. I have already had a few parents email me as they either have not received or are unsure how to check if they are eligible for Free School Meal Payments so please do get in touch. If the links I have added have not answered your questions then you can email me confidentially at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can leave me an email or your name and telephone number and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
The link below will take you to The City of Edinburgh Council’s dedicated Corona Virus page . You will find links on how to understand and apply for Financial Help and benefits.
The following link will take you to the Parent Club Website where it offers lots of information about money matters, dealing with change and learning at home:
I hope this helps and if you have any further questions or want to get in touch just email admin at the email address above.
