More information about school meals

Meals in primary, secondary and special educational needs schools

All primary and secondary schools have notice boards displaying three-week menu cycles, promoting the service, providing information and encouraging feedback.

All parents, with children in primary school, will receive a copy of the Primary Menus.

Secondary Menus are also available.

We promise to help your child make a healthy choice and to provide the best service possible. Additional information on healthy eating in our schools can be found in the pdf icon Diet and Nutrition Policy [1Mb].
