Primary school meals

Please note: Temporary menus are in place in line with COVID19 guidance.  Please see the current icon update on school meals [10Kb].

All pupils in primaries 1 - 4 are entitled to free school meals from August 2021.

How do I pay for primary school meals?

Online payments

Online payments are available in all primary schools.  This means you pay for school meals (as well as many other school activities) from your computer or mobile device. This facility includes payment receipt, balance status and menu transactions as well as automatic reminders should your account require additional funds.

Cash payments

If you prefer you can pay by cash or cheque (payable to Perth & Kinross Council). Payment should be placed in a sealed envelope with the name of the child(ren) on the front and amount per child.

Primary and nursery menus and allergen and nutritional information

Menus, nutritional and allergy information is available from Tayside Contracts.

All schools operate a pre-order system to help ensure children get their preferred choice of meal. Children typically make their choice during morning registration in the classroom.  Please note that any meals ordered by children in error or who subsequently go home ill, may be charged for if the kitchen is informed of the error/their absence after 10.30am.

Medically prescribed diets and nut and peanut allergy

School lunches can be provided for children in primary schools either requiring a medically prescribed diet or who have a nut and/or peanut allergy. Please download the icon information leaflet [282Kb] and icon application form [158Kb]. Parents can also self manage simple dietary requirements for their children by using the interactive menu and carbohydrate menu available at Tayside Contracts.
