School meals

Primary meals

Primary school menus have been developed to meet national nutritional standards set by the Scottish Government. Our recipes contain less fat, sugar and salt and are now better balanced, healthier and more nutritious.

Main meal is a daily choice of:

  • soup with a sandwich
  • one of two main course options
  • 'grab five' packed lunch (ask if this option is available at your school)
  • themed lunches based on school projects, curriculum or external events

Dessert is a choice of:

  • the daily dessert
  • fresh fruit

Gluten and Dairy free menus are available for pupil's who are registered as receiving a special diet for medical reasons. Additional options can be made available for pupils who have additional dietary requirements. If you need to register your child as having a special diet then please ask you school office for the Special Diet Requirement Form.


Menus are issued throughout the year and are based on a four week menu cycle. A pre-ordering system is in place which allows you to spend time discussing your child's weekly choices in advance.

  • We operate an online payment facility with ParentPay
  • ParentPay allows you to select a choice for you child, order and pay for it online
  • If you do not currently have a ParentPay account please contact your school
  • If you are unable to access an online system please contact your school who will provide an alternative method for ordering

Parents of primary one to three pupils in the Borders are reminded that their child is eligible for a free school meal as part of the Scottish Government’s initiative.

Free P1-3 meal scheme

The scheme is now in place and every P1 to P3 pupil can now receive a free nutritional meal that complies with current legislation and help towards improved learning attainment.

Advice available

We are able to deal with special dietary requirements providing we have prior knowledge of a child’s needs and our Nutritionist will arrange to meet any parent or carer to discuss the scheme.

Anyone with a query on the new P1 to P3 free school meal initiative can phone 01835 825149 or fill out the online contact form.
