School Meals

School meals are served in the cashless cafeteria. There is a kitchen which has excellent facilities for on site preparation of food. Special medical dietary requirements may be provided on consultation with the cook/supervisor.

See North Lanarkshire council website for more information on school meals and to download the latest menus:

Special Diets

Diets required as a result of a medical condition (a medically prescribed diet e.g. coelic disease, diabetes, food allergy or intolerance) can be provided in school. A medically prescribed diet form must be completed by the child’s Registered Dietician or General Practitioner. Occasionally, parents/carers may be asked to supply prescription foods or attend a meeting to discuss the child’s dietary requirements.

Free School Meals

From 5 January 2015 ALL Primary 1 to Primary 3 pupils will be entitled to receive a free school meal.

This will be available in all primary schools automatically with no eligibility criteria linked to benefits.

Primary 4 to Primary 7 Free School Meals

These are available to parents who are receiving income support or income-based job seekers allowance and whose children attend a school in North Lanarkshire.

Applications are available from schools, first stop shops and education area offices.

Further information can be found on North Lanarkshire council website:

Children whose parents are in receipt of income support or job seekers allowance (income based) will be entitled to free milk.

Packed Lunches

If the weather permits, children are allowed to eat their packed lunch outside, during only the months of August, September, May and June, otherwise they sit in the dining room.

For safety reasons, please use only cartons or small plastic containers for drinks – (not glass bottles or cans) since these may become the cause of accidents. No lollipops are permitted.

Children who do not go to the cafeteria to buy their meal or eat their packed lunch are considered to have gone home for lunch.

Tuck Shop

The school tuck shop sells only low fat crisps, healthy biscuits, fresh fruit and fruit juices. This is organised and run by the school’s catering staff.
