School Meals

Menus at Holy Rood RC High School offer healthy and tasty meal options which are keeping with the Scottish Government food and drink legal requirements for school lunches. Special diets and allergies can be accommodated subject to consultation with parents / guardians and the school catering service.

The menu will come into effect on the 17th of April 2023 and will run until the start of the Easter Term in 2024. It will run on a four weekly cycle.

Each year we incorporate feedback from a survey into our new menus. Last year’s survey showed that 82% of parents rated our menu as good or excellent.

Food for life is a nationally recognised scheme set up by the Soil Association to improve standards in the food we eat. Edinbugrh schools received the bronze award in 2011 and have been reaccredited each year. This means that all our school lunches:

  • Are nutritious
  • Are seasonal
  • Have low food miles
  • Use local suppliers
  • Do not contain unnecessary additives

The cost of a school meal for secondary schools is £2.80.

Our current meal provider is Mitie.
