Children of parents receiving income support or income based job seekers allowance and in some cases child tax credit, are entitled to a free midday meal. Information and application forms for free school meals areavailable from schools, registration offices, customer service centres or by downloading from the council’s website: www.renfrewshire.gov.uk
Children who are entitled to free school meals are also entitled to free milk at lunchtime. Milk may also be available for sale in the school during the lunch period.
There is a self-service cafeteria system with a wide range of meals and snacks available. Through the Hungry for Success initiative there is an increased emphasis on healthy eating to include a deli bar, baked potatoes with a range of fillings, fruit and healthy drinks including water. All items are priced individually and lunch may be paid for in cash, by a biometric fingerprint system or by a combination of the two. Pupils may eat packed lunches in the street area.
It would be helpful if we could be notified in advance if a pupil has any special dietary requirements.
