Early Learning and Childcare

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 are provided through our catering service.

All our nursery menus are carefully planned to meet national nutritional standards set by the Scottish Government. Further details are available on the nursery school meal webpages.

Meals in other settings

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