What's in our school lunches?

We use local produce where we can. Meals are freshly prepared, with seasonal ingredients:

  • eggs from cage free hens
  • meat from animals farmed to British Welfare Standards
  • fish from sustainable sources

Menus are free from GM ingredients and undesirable additives, with at least 15% organic ingredients, including vegetables, dry goods and milk.

We are proud to have achieved the Gold Standard award from the Scottish Soil Association Food for Life Scotland programme.   

Special dietary needs

We can cater for pupils who, because of medical reasons or religion, have special dietary needs. Children with medical dietary needs should have been referred to and met with an NHS Dietician.

If your child has special dietary needs, please inform your head teacher. They will send you a Special Diet Request form to fill in and return to your school.
