Please note in order to place a school packed lunch for a Friday:

The schoolpay system requires you to order meals for the whole week (Monday – Thursday).  Any changes can be made by your child in the classroom each morning.

In order not to run up debt due to your child being absent please select:

Home packed lunch (Monday – Thursday).

A Friday’s school packed lunch must be ordered by 2.00pm on a Monday.  This is a requirement for P1-7.

Payment for lunches should be paid via schoolpay.  If you are sending your child in with cash/cheque please send this in on a Monday morning  only for the whole week/month/term.

Thank you

Debbie Stenhouse, Kitchen Supervisor



On Wednesday evening (28 August) we look forward to welcoming you to our ‘Meet the teacher’ evening.  Each class teacher will run three 20 minute slots so that families with more than one child in the school can attend a slot for each of their children.

The slots will run from:

18:00 – 18.20

18:20 – 18:40

18:40 – 19.00

There is no need to book a slot, just turn up at one of the sessions.
