School meals are cooked in school daily by our cook, Mrs Bryson. The cost is £2.10 for a two course meal with the choice of two main dishes or soup and a sandwich.  Scottish Borders Council operates a four week rotating menu and a copy is sent home for parents a week in advance to see what is offered.  We ask that money be paid when returning the order for the week, as this helps with administration.


Children not having a school lunch can bring a packed lunch.  All children are seated at dining tables and good table manners are encouraged and reinforced.


Free meals are available.  Parents who think they may be eligible should make an application to Scottish Borders Council.  Forms are available from the school.
