We would still ask that pupils have their meal in the school, this is to avoid leaving the premises to then return during a school day in current restrictions.
The lunchtimes are split into two sittings
P1 -4 – 12:00pm – 12:45pm
P5 – 7 – 12:30pm – 1:15pm
No snacks are currently being offered during the interval period to avoid groups of children, please ensure your child has a snack for interval.
P1 -4 – 10:15am – 10:30am
P5 – 7 – 10:35am – 10:50pm
Things will be a bit different this school year. It is important that we follow strict procedures to keep everyone safe while there is still any risk of the coronavirus spreading again.
We are taking cash out of the process which will help reduce the spread of the virus. (Localised solutions will be in place for anyone who is unable to sign up for online payments.)
Many parents/carers have already signed up to use online payments, those who have not registered will receive a text message with a unique reference number for each child.
Once you have received the unique account reference number for your child/children you can sign up using the instructions

There will be a limited menu in all schools this will include some hot meal choices. Information on school dinners, pricing and the current menu can be found here: https://www.northlanarkshire.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=23269 The nursery menu is very similar to the school menu and can be found within the Nursery Zone Sub-Site.
Studies have shown that eating breakfast every morning will:
– Provide a healthy nutritious start to the day
– Help children to be alert and ready to learn
– Encourage children to mix with their friends
– Improve attendance and performance throughout the day
The breakfast club takes place in the school dining hall, at the bottom of the playground and is available from 8.15 until 9.00am. The children will be supervised by Mrs Cook. The children will receive cereal, toast and fruit juice. The standard cost of breakfast will be as follows:
- Free if the pupil is in receipt of Free School Meals
- Free for all children in P1-P3
- £1 per pupil per day, there is a sliding scale where there is more than one child from the same family attending
- 1st Child £1
- 2nd Child 50p
- 3rd Child 30p
