Secondary school menu

Menu update

The secondary school menu changed on Monday 19 April. The new menu runs until the end of October. Please see below for details.

The Scottish Government introduced changes to the Nutritional standards for Food and Drink regulations in schools in April 2021. 

The changes are based on the most up to date scientific evidence on diet and health and are designed to support the health of children and young people in the school setting.

The food and drink that is provided across the school day is designed to support progress towards the Scottish Dietary Goals. This will help to ensure that children and young people, especially those receiving free school meals, have access to nutritionally balanced school lunches.

All main meals in a secondary school must now include two portions of vegetables or salad and a piece of fruit. See options 1- 4 below as to how that will be achieved.

We would like to reassure parents that the school meal service has worked hard to continue to provide a safe working environment and staff are working to Covid-19 protocols.

Breakdown of a school meal

The two-course lunch has increased by 10p and is now £3.15.

All options 1 and 2, are now £2.70 and include vegetable of the day, a mixed salad and a piece of fruit.

All options 3 and 4 are now £2.70 and include soup, a mixed salad and a piece of fruit

The meal deal is £3.15. All 4 options are included in the meal deal which also includes a 500ml bottle of water.

Due to financial pressures over the last few years, we can no longer afford to subsidise school meals. A free school meal entitlement is up to the value of the school meal price of £3.15.

In August 2020 we launched the Fusion pre-order app. This has reduced queues at break or lunchtimes as well as taking away the need for handling cash.

Please note, if you have a food allergy or intolerance then you should speak to your Head of Year/Catering Manager who will advise on the special diets.
