A selection of handheld rolls, yoghurts, fresh fruit and drinks are available at morning break service.

Our High School "Balanced Core Menus" meet the newly revised Scottish Nutritional Guidance for Food and Drink in Schools.

Additional support for learning schools (ASL)

The meal provision in ASL schools is the same as the relevant provision in Primary and Secondary schools.


Breakfast Clubs

The Scottish Government guidance for reopening schools particularly around trying to keep children within the same groups or "bubbles" has meant that we have been unable to provide this service.

This service is being kept under review as the Scottish Government guidance is updated.


Payments

Parents can pay and pre order their child's lunch using the iPay system.

Primary menus are currently loaded on a 3-week rotation. This provides flexibility and allows any menu changes to be made with minimal disruption to parents' preorder choices.


Additional support for pupils entitled to free school meals who are self-isolating

Lunch grab bags are available for any primary or secondary school pupils who are self-isolating and are entitled to free school meals.

Arrangements will need to be made for someone to collect the bags on behalf of those pupils who are self-isolating.


Support for families experiencing food insecurity

The Council has set up a dedicated team to support families during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
