At Inverlochy Primary, lunchtime is a time for children to relax and refuel after a morning of hard work and active learning! Our lunchtimes are from 12:15pm to 1:15pm every day.
For all children in Primary 1-3 school dinners are free! School meals for Primary 4-7 are £2.30. If you wish to pay by cheque for school dinners please make them payable to Highland Council.
If your child has any allergies or dietary requirements we are happy to accommodate. Please request a dietary requirements form from the school canteen. Applications for free school meals can also be obtained from the office.

Guidance for parents
Primary 1 to 3 free school meals are a Scottish government funded initiative
- The meal is optional
- Primary 1 to 3 children are only entitled to a school meal at lunchtime. Parents and carers need to provide pupils with money for any other service provision in school such as morning break or breakfast
- There is no application process involved
- Parents and carers of primary 1 to 3 children still need to apply for clothing grants where applicable
- Parents and carers of children in Primary 4 to 7 if entitled still need to apply for free school meals following the usual process
- For medically confirmed special diets, applications need to be completed and returned to the head teacher
- Primary 1 to 3 children who are in a school with no meal provision will be reimbursed for every day that the child has been in attendance at school. This is based on the economic daily rate
