To encourage children to eat healthier food we've been improving our school meals service. Our menus include nutritional information in line with the Schools (Nutrition and Health Promotion)(Scotland) Act 2007. Please note our menus may be subject to change due to availability of produce from suppliers.
If your child is in primary 4 - 7 or secondary they may be entitled to a free school meal if you receive certain benefits, see the Free school meals page for full details.
Primary school lunches
The Primary School summer 2017 menu started on Monday 24 April.
The new Primary School winter menu 2017/18 will start on Monday 30 October.
The lunch for primary school children consists of a three course meal, including starter, main meal/snack and dessert/fresh fruit.

The nutritional content of each meal is as accurate as possible but should be considered advisory.
