Expansion of universal free school meals
In August, free school meals were introduced for P4 children. This means a two-course meal will be provided to all children from P1 to P4.
Free school meals will then be extended to P5 children from January 2022.
A short survey will then be issued to parents and carers regarding the free school meal provision.
Information regarding the roll out of free school meals to the remaining year groups (P6 and P7) will be provided in 2022.
School meals pre-order portal
Our Catering Service introduced a Pre-order Portal for school meals in secondary schools. Find out how to pre-order school meals on our school meals pre-order portal page.
School meals menus changed from 19 April 2021 and run on a three weekly cycle. Please see our menu rotation calendar (PDF 203Kb) 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.
- 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
Special dietary requirements
If your child has any special dietary requirements or allergies please contact the school’s catering manager in the first instance.
Price of a school meal
The price of a standard two course meal in all schools is £2.15.
Nutritional standards for food and drink in schools
From 8 April 2021, changes were implemented by the Scottish Government to the Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) Regulations.
Find out more on our nutritional standards for food and drink in schools page.
Menu development groups
Every year we hold menu development sessions with parents and school catering staff to help decide what will be on the following year's menus. If you are interested in attending one of these events please get in touch.
If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the menus or the school meals service overall you can fill out our online school meals survey for parents.
