School Catering

All our schools provide subsidised meals, either prepared in-house or, in three cases, at a neighbouring school. The school meals service aims to provide children with a high quality and varied diet and copies of the menus are available from each individual school. For further information on the catering provisions, contact the school in question. Contact details are available from the 'Related Links' section of this page.

From January 2015, all pupils in Primary 1-3 are automatically entitled to a free school meal as part of a Scottish Government initiative. Some pupils outwith this age group may also be entitled to free school meals depending on their family circumstances. The Free School Meals and Clothing Allowances section provides further information, including eligibility criteria, and can be accessed from the 'Related Links' section of this page.
