If you require Halal meals, please contact the school office for a
Cultural Diet Meals Request Form
The school has its own kitchen and meals are cooked on the premises. A cashless cafeteria provides a choice of two types of meal – a pre-packed sandwich or baguette, yoghurt, baking, piece of fruit and juice or a two-course meal with a choice. A tuck shop with fruit and home baking is open at morning playtime and after each lunchtime in the dining-hall. Special diets are available if required.
Parents are reminded that glass containers are forbidden in school and as lunch boxes can look very similar, please ensure that they are clearly labelled. Parents are encouraged to supply an ice pack in lunch boxes.
Milk, both plain and flavoured, is available for all children who wish it, both at morning interval and lunchtime.
Eaglesham Primary is a Health Promoting School, having been assessed according to the criteria in the ‘Here’s Health’ document. As such the ‘Here’s Health’ logo can be freely displayed on school letterhead.
Children of parents receiving Income Support are entitled to a free midday meal. Information and application forms may be obtained from school, area and education offices. Only those children whose parents receive support will be entitled to free milk. A new application should be made each session preferably in April, for the following session.
Only pupils going home for lunch are permitted out of school grounds during the lunch break.
Facilities Management and Communications have recently put together a short video of a day in the life of school meals within primary.
The aim is to ensure parents and carers are aware of how the school meals service works and how they can ensure their child can access the service on a daily basis.
