Every pupil in the school has the opportunity to pick up a later healthy breakfast option at our Pit Stop. During morning interval staff and pupils provide hot drinks, water, diluting juice, toast and fruit to any young person who needs it. Many of our young people leave the house very early in the morning, some without breakfast so this helps fuel them up for the day ahead. It is available to all young people and is free of charge.
Our Pit Stop is situated on the ground floor and is open every interval.
General Cost of Living
The rise in the cost of living is really hitting but there’s more help out there than you might think. Trying to find out what you’re entitled to, what support is on offer and where to get it can be really confusing. A new website has been launched by Fife Council and partners where you can access a huge range of support, all in one place. With useful information, advice and contact details our.fife.scot/gethelp links to support with energy bills, food, benefits, the family, and home, as well as health and wellbeing, so you should be able to find help that’s right for you. There’s also an online benefit checker -so you can make sure you are getting everything you’re entitled to. #GetHelpFife
Fife Council and partners want to ensure that every Fifer has easy access to coordinated practical information and support, which helps reduce the impact of rising costs when needed the most. Part of this campaign is the Cost of Living Support (fife.scot) website which provides information on the wide range of advice and financial support available to the people of Fife. This site will also be used internally by the staff looking for information on behalf of customers.
With this in mind, the Council team would appreciate you having a look through the site, looking for information, making sure you can find the answers you were expecting, and then reporting back your findings through this Website Feedback Form: https://bit.ly/3MzLxYI
All feedback will be used to inform how the site changes and improves in the coming weeks. #GetHelpFife
