Special diets 

You can find the list of allergens listed above. 

As far as possible, we try to cater for all types of medical diet:

  • diabetic
  • nut-free
  • egg-free
  • gluten-free
  • additive-free
  • milk-free.

If your child needs a medically restricted diet, please contact your child's headteacher in the first instance. 

The headteacher will pass your request to the area catering manager who will then contact you to find out your child's exact dietary needs. 

You should make your request in writing and include evidence from your doctor or another medical authority. You should fully describe your child's diagnosis and dietary needs. 

We cannot accept verbal requests because the diet a child eats can affect their health, both now and later in life.

Costs and free meals

Free school meals P1 to P3 

All primary 1 to primary 3 school children are now entitled to a free school meal. You do not need to do anything for your child to receive this service. 

Free school meals P4 to S6 

Your child may be entitled to free school meals after P3. To find out if you are eligible and to apply, visit our free school meals page. 

Paying for school meals

Our current prices are listed on the Fees and Charges page.

The majority of our schools have ParentPay, which is an online cashless payment system to pay for school meals. 

For schools not on ParentPay, please see our interim cashless payment option on our coronavirus advice for schools and nurseries section.  

Many people qualify for free school meals yet don't apply for it. It could save you money and ensure your child has a healthier lunch.
