School Meals - Primary


Download Menu (PDF)    Nutritional Standards for Food and Drink in Schools.

National regulations for school meals in Scotland changed in April 2021. The changes are to help reach the Scottish Dietary Goals and to minimise the risk to the health of children and young people. By limiting the amount of red and red processed meat; reducing the intake of fat, sugar and salt; and increasing fibre, fruit and vegetables we’ll get closer to those goals.

How much do school meals cost?

All children are eligible for free school meals until they reach P4. Meals from P1-P3 are available automatically. From P4, school meals can be purchased online and from the school.

P1-3     Free
P4-7     £2.30

Find out if your child is eligible for free school meals from P4 to P7.

Due to coronavirus :

  • There will be no tuck shops
  • A few schools will still be on a reduced menu as they will be required to still be served in class rooms. Schools will let parents know who this effects.
  • Please pay for the meals using the Ipay system where possible, if you require a registration code please contact your school

Special diets

Make the head teacher aware of any allergies or intolerances your child has when they start school. We can arrange to have a meeting with you to discuss meal options. We will always try to accommodate all types of special diets in our school meals, including gluten free, dairy free, etc.
