Every child from Primary 1 to Primary 5 is now entitled to free school meals.

Information regarding free school meals to the remaining year groups (Primary 6 and Primary 7) will be provided later in the year.

Further food support

We recognise that money can be tight and access to fresh food can be challenging. There are community organisations supported by us that can provide guidance and support.

School meals menus

School meals menus run on a three weekly cycle. Please see our school meals weekly rotation schedule or contact the school's Catering Manager to find out what week your child's school is on.

At the moment we have reduced our menus slightly, but where available we will continue to use organic, local and seasonal produce and have designated meat-free days.

Please also note:

  • all our main meals/snacks are served with two fresh seasonal vegetables/fresh salad and a piece of fruit
  • every day we offer a pick and mix sandwich option, salad dishes, yoghurt, fresh fruit and free bread
  • all meat on offer is sourced from local butchers with our chicken Red Tractor assured halal meat
