Primary School meals
We run a 3 week lunch menu cycle. Pupils can choose a traditional hot meal or
a soup and sandwich option. A daily bread basket, chilled water and a selection
of salad and fruit is included in the meal price.
- Primary School menu 2016-17
The price of a 2 course primary school lunch is £2.05. All pupils in Primary 1-3
are entitled to a free school meal.
Our meals are carefully prepared in our school kitchens to make sure that the fat,
sugar and salt content in the recipes used is not excessive. All our menus meet
the requirements of The School (Health Promotion and Nutrition) Scotland Act 2007.
Lunch choices are ordered in the morning and are identified on the weekly menu planner
- Option 1 (green wrist band)
- Option 2 (yellow wrist band)
- Option 3 (blue wrist band)
This guarantees pupils their first choice of main meal. It also makes the lunch
quicker, as catering staff can identify the pupil's meal choice by the colour of
wristband they are wearing.
We offer vegetarian choices and meat free options. If a pupil requires a medically
prescribed diet, we will arrange to meet with the parent/carer to discuss menu choices
once a declaration form has been completed. Prescribed diet declaration forms can
be picked up from the school office.
Celebration theme days
We hold "themed lunch days" throughout the year. By offering food that links with
a subject, national event or celebration being covered in the classroom, pupils
are given the opportunity to experience cultures and tastes from around the world.
Theme days are fun days! Menus are published in advance and displayed on school
notice boards and on school websites.

Other High Schools
Carrongrange School, Graeme High, Braes High, Bo’ness Academy and Larbert High get

If you would like more information about the meals that are provided at these high
schools, please contact our Client Services Manager by emailing:
All of our high schools have a cashless catering system, with pupils using swipe
cards to pay for all food purchases. Cards can be loaded or topped up at several
machines located in the dining areas. The cards are then swiped at the till which
removes the amount spent.
If a pupil is entitled to
free school meals, their swipe card is loaded with £2.45 each day.
In a hurry?
At Denny High, Falkirk High, Grangemouth High and St Mungo's High, pupils can order
from one of our pre-order kiosks. These are located in the dining areas. Pupils
can order and pay at break time, collect and go at lunchtime.
Our high schools take part in a variety of themed lunch days throughout the year.
Look out for posters promoting the next themed lunch event in the dining areas.
Our commitment to the environment

We are working with our food suppliers and partners to increase the local produce
we use and minimise food packaging.
