School Lunches

See The City of Edinburgh Council Website for Information. You will find allergy information on City of Edinburgh’s website.

Children can receive a school hot lunch Mon-Thurs and a cold packed lunch on a Friday. Menus are on Parent Pay, the online, cashless, booking system. All lunches must be booked using this system in advance of requiring a lunch. Please contact Mrs Moore, our administrator if you would like any help ordering a lunch for your child: admin@stockbridge.edin.sch.uk

All P1-P5 children are entitled to a free school lunch from January 2022.

Edinburgh Council can provide children from low income families with free school meals and money to help towards buying school clothes, please see the website link below for full information.

Free school meal, milk and school clothing grants

Our number of pupils on free school meals affects our Pupil Equity Funding therefore we would really appreciate it if you completed the application if you feel you meet the criteria even if you are planning on providing your child with packed lunches.

Food in schools

School meals from the City of Edinburgh council offer

  • healthy choices
  • at least two portions of fruit and vegetables
  • oily fish
  • excellent value for money.

We are committed to sourcing from the UK when possible.  We use local suppliers for meat, vegetables and milk and all of our fish comes from sustainable sources.

All food in our schools complies with Scottish Government legislation. Learn about health promotion and nutrition in schools(external link) on their website.

School milk

We provide free milk to all pupils in our early years centres. In primary and special schools, children entitled to free school meals also qualify for free milk. Please note – this is not an automatic entitlement in P1-4 – free school milk must be applied for if you are in receipt of benefits. see here

Pupils in our primary and special schools who do not qualify for free meals can purchase cartons of milk by contacting the school

Packed Lunches:

Some children choose to bring a packed lunch. Please name your child’s lunch box. Packed lunches are eaten in the school hall with school lunch pupils. All will eat together.  Our staff on duty at lunchtime help the children when required and encourage them to take any uneaten food home 

Home lunches: If you wish your child to go home for lunch please inform your child’s class teacher

Please let us know if your child has any special dietary needs. Please contact our school office: admin@stockbridge.edin.sch.uk
