SCHOOL MEALS AND MILK PROVISION

We are delighted to provide nutritious schools meals for our children at Ratho Primary School. These are currently made at the nearby Kirkliston Primary School and transported to us each day. We hope to re-open our own school kitchen this year.

Children may be entitled to free school meals and milk if their parents are in receipt of income support, jobseekers allowance or child tax credit.  Further information and an application form can be obtained from the school office or you can make enquiries on 0131 469 3021.  Milk can also be purchased termly or yearly.  Letters asking for milk money are issued at the start of each term. School meals are delivered from the kitchens at Kirkliston Primary every day. There is a choice of two hot meals.  Packed lunches only are served on Fridays.  The menu has been prepared in line with the Scottish Executive’s Hungry for Success campaign.  Lunches can be ordered termly or weekly, using ParentPay.  We encourage children to drink water during the day and we ask you to provide them with a water bottle. We politely ask that water bottles are for water only and not squash or fizzy drinks, this is so we can encourage the children to have healthy habits, we also ask that the drink you provide for lunch or snack is not fizzy.

Children are permitted to go home for their lunch at parents and carer’s request.  Please let the school office know if you would like your child to go home for lunch.  We cannot accept this ‘message’ from the pupils for safety reasons.
