The Scottish Government published details of Scottish Child Payment Bridging Payments on 30 August 2021.

We will pay £130 for the October holiday to each P1 – S6 pupil who are entitled to Free School Meals due to their parent/guardian being in receipt of low income or a qualifying benefit.

The payment can be used by families for any purpose as they see fit. There is no expectation that these payments are to be used for any specific purpose.

In addition to this the Council will pay £2.40 per child, per week day, to families during the holidays, this covers the period 10 October 2022 to 21 October 2022, so will be an additional £24.

Stirling Council has also agreed to top this payment up from Council budget by £20 per week per child, as the October holidays are for two weeks you will receive an additional £40 per child.

A total payment of £194 will be paid for each eligible child and will be in your account no later than Monday 10 October 2022.
