School Lunches

To encourage children to eat healthier food we've been improving our school meals service. Our menus include nutritional information in line with the Schools (Nutrition and Health Promotion)(Scotland) Act 2007. Please note our menus may be subject to change due to availability of produce from suppliers.

If your child is in primary 4-7 or secondary they may be entitled to a free school meal if you receive certain benefits, see the Free school meals page for full details.


Primary school lunches

The Primary School menu consists of a three course meal, including starter, main meal/snack, fresh fruit or yoghurt. The children also have access to unlimited bread, salad and vegetables to supplement their meal. We have introduced information on allergens and nutritional content for menu items served over lunchtime. The nutritional content of each meal is as accurate as possible but should be considered advisory.

Primary school meal costs:

  • Primary 1-3 are free
  • Primary 4-7 is £1.70

LPS Swap Shop

In a bid to be a more sustainable school we are holding our first ever Swap Shop

We are also accepting any other unwanted clothing, Hallowee'en costumes, party clothing and footwear which could be put to good use! We hope this this will be a huge sucess and improve our eco footprint!

There will be a few changes to staffing next session.  We say goodbye and good luck to Mr Shanks who has now completed his first full year in teaching and to Mrs Anderson who was with us on a temporary basis. They have both secured permanent posts, so we are delighted for them- congratulations!

It looks like we will be welcoming another newly qualified teacher to our staff next year and we look forward to meeting them soon.  We will also welcome back Miss Reid to Lanark Primary, who has returned after her maternity leave. Like last year, all information regarding your child’s class/teacher for next session will be issued in a separate letter before the end of term.

Eco Flag- renewal

We are pleased to announce that Lanark Primary has once again received an Eco flag for our work in looking after our environment. Well done to Mrs Gracie, Miss Elkin, our Eco and Outdoor Committees for being instrumental in helping make it possible!


LPS Has Talent!

There has been a buzz of excitement around our recent auditions for our LPS Has Talent Show, which will take place on Wednesday 26th June. Thank you for all the support you have given the children to help them take part! Also, a big thank you to Mrs Nicholas and the Drama Club for running this event! It is bound to be a fantastic show! Please note: this is a show for children only.
