School Meals

Secondary Menus offer healthy and tasty meal options whilst reflecting the Scottish Government food and drink legal requirements for School Lunches. Special diets and allergies are usually accommodated subject to consultation with the parent/guardian and the regional dietician. Meal prices are reviewed annually. Please contact the school to be advised of the current price.

Graeme High School is a health promoting school. We educate pupils in the positive benefits of healthy diet and exercise.  Our canteen services are provided by an outside contractor “Scolarest” and pupils pay for what they choose. A range of main courses and desserts are provided each day as well as a  variety of healthy options such as salad baguettes, pasta bar and fruit.

Pupils bringing packed lunches may eat them in the dining area.

Pupils who require a special diet should advise their Depute House Head.

The school cafeteria operates a cashless catering system. Each pupil will receive their own cashless  catering card which can be topped up with credit at machine in the social area or dinning hall. Parents are advised that these machines only accept coins. Parents can also add money to their child’s lunch card by making an online payment, available through our school website.  Please visit the Parent/Carer Zone, online payments section.

Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will have their cards automatically topped up each day. It is vital that pupils bring their cards each day and take personal responsibility for looking after them. We may require to charge a fee for lost or damaged cards that require to be replaced.
