School lunches

Covid guidelines mean that school dining rooms are closed, and children will eat in their classrooms.

The week beginning:

  • 10 January we will provide a cold packed lunch
  • 17 January we will provide a hot/cold packed lunch.

There will be a restricted menu for all ELC and P1 to P5 pupils.

P6, P7 and High School pupils will receive a Bacs payment and must bring a home-packed lunch.

Allergies and special diets

Important: tell your school if your child has an allergy, intolerance, special diet (vegetarian, vegan, religious) or health care plan.

If your child has a medically prescribed diet, the catering team would need information from your doctor or another medical provider.

Contact your nursery or school’s office to arrange to discuss this with the Catering Supervisor.
