Our new menu is now live for booking on ParentPay! Remember meals are free for pupils in P1-P5 and all special school pupils.  Book now for schools coming back in August – Family favourites such as chicken Kiev, pork sausage & mash. Or try dishes from around the world like our lamb kofta and 3 bean chili tacos!
