School Meals

It is Aberdeenshire Council policy to provide meals and facilities for the consumption of packed lunches in all schools where these are required.

  • Primary 1-5 pupils are provided with school meals free of charge.
  • Primary 4- S6 pupils are currently charged £2.50 for a school meal unless they qualify for Free School Meals.

Lunch hour is 12.20-1.20pm for all pupils.

Aberdeenshire Council provides an online payment service to pay for school meals.

To register for online payments you will be provided with a reference number by your school for each child. Parents and carers of pupils who qualify for Free School Meals are encouraged to create an account to see meal selection histories and to pay for non-food items such as school trips and activities when that option becomes available.

The first step in accessing the online payment service is to visit Pay facility located on the Aberdeenshire Council web site home page. Alternatively you can register by following the link:

Parents should be aware that they can request a special diet for their children if there are medical or religious reasons for doing so. Children who require medically prescribed or modified diets should be identified during the admission process. Parents and Carers are advised to complete Admission Form D which is available from the school administration office.
