Young Scot Cards

The Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC) is free of charge to all Secondary aged pupils living in Scotland. The card can be used in many ways, for example: money off purchases in shops, exclusive rewards, money off travel and much more.

At Breadalbane our pupils can also use their Young Scot card to pay for their school lunches from Tayside Contracts. Parents can top up their child card via ParentPay and the money goes directly on their card for them ready to spend. The Young Scot card is also used by pupils for checking books out of the library when visiting with their class teacher. They can use this card in place of a separate CPK library card.

Although young people are not required to carry a Young Scot card, it is a convenient way to access a range of services.
