Primary school meals menu

All pupils in Primary 1 - Primary 5 are entitled to a free school meal.

This menu is compliant with The Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) Regulations 2020. This ensures more access to fruit and vegetables, reduction in sugar, red and red processed meat and ensures our children and young people have access to an appropriate amount of nutrients such as iron and vitamins. The menu meets the standard required by the Soil Association Food for Life Served Here Bronze Award, which promotes freshly made, sustainable and farm assured meals.

All eggs are free range. All fish are Marine Stewardship Council certified. All beef served is Scottish and all meat and poultry is UK Farm Assured.

All Catering staff are trained in food hygiene, hold an Elementary Food Hygiene Certificate, and receive regular refresher training. All kitchens follow HACCP guidance, and comply with Environmental Health. The catering staff are also trained in nutrition.

Where there is a choice, pupils can choose to have either a starter and main course or a main course and dessert. If the school is making any menu substitutions, they will let you know in advance wherever possible. A two course meal is £2.30. Water and milk are available.

Allergy Advice and Special Diets

The allergy information for our Primary school menu is available by contacting catering@argyll-bute.gov.uk.

If your child has a food allergy, please contact the school office in the first instance and complete a Special Diet Request Form. All Catering Managers have been trained on Allergy Awareness, and every effort will be made to accommodate your child's needs.

Many dishes can be altered to accommodate other special diets where this is required.  Where possible, other non-medical special diets may be accommodated. 

Would you like your child to see a dietician? A team of professionals who specialise in helping people learn about food and health can be contacted at High-UHB.DietitiansDirect@nhs.scot

We welcome any feedback you may have - if you have any suggestions, or require any information, you can contact the Catering department by emailing catering@argyll-bute.gov.uk, or using the form below.
