Free school meals

The Scottish Government is providing funding so that children accessing expanded ELC hours or are eligible for free school meals will receive a free meal if they access their funded place over the lunch time period (12noon-1pm).

Free meals in our school settings

In school settings, these will be provided through our catering service.

The menus are based on the Primary School menu and have been developed to meet the Scottish Government’s nutrition standards and provide a balanced yet nutritious meal.

Meals in other settings

Many other settings in the private and voluntary sectors, including childminders, are also able to provide nutritious and healthy lunches and you should speak to them directly to see what they are able to offer.
