Service updates and advice

Primary school menu

From Monday 26 October 2020 the primary school menu has been updated. This menu cycle will run until the end of March 2021. As well as our hot main meal option we are now offering a baked potato choice on a daily basis.

The two-course lunch consists of a main course plus soup and bread or sweet treat fruit or yoghurt as indicated on the menu and the option of plain milk or chilled water.

With each meal children also have a choice of two seasonal vegetables and/or salad with their lunch. We would also like to reassure parents that the school meal service has worked hard to provide a safe working environment and staff are working to Covid-19 protocols.

Price of a school meal

Due to financial pressures over the last few years, we can no longer afford to subsidise school meals.

This is why it was decided as a budget decision at a meeting of the full council in February 2020 to fully recover the cost of school meals, which has resulted in a price increase that should have been implemented in April 2020.

The price of a primary school two-course lunch is now £3. We understand the impact that this may have on families and we do advise families who are eligible for free school meals to take this up. A free school meal entitlement is up to the value of the school meal price of £3. This includes all pupils from P1 to P3 who are entitled to a universal free school meal.

Payment methods

We have made changes to our payment methods in response to the Covid-19. This includes taking cash out of the process, which will help reduce the spread of the virus. Local solutions will be in place for anyone who is unable to sign up for online payments.

Pre-order service

The school takes a pre-order for pupils daily. Pupils can select their meal early in the morning and secure their meal of choice. This will then be rung through a till earlier in the day to deduct the money from the pupil's account. Through online payments this will also allow you to see the balance and meal choice.

Medical and special diets

Please note, if your child has a food allergy or intolerance then you should speak to the Head Teacher/Catering Manager who will advise on the special diets procedure.
