School Dinners

School meals are provided by Tayside Contracts catering. All pupils will have a set meal with a choice of main course. Menus are sent home at the start of each new menu so that parents can be informed of their child's choices. Children will either choose their lunch independently in class upon arrival at 9am or tell their teacher their choice during registration. A choice of pudding and drink is available alongside the main dinner option. If the school has been informed, children with dietary requirements will be given an alternative menu to comply with their dietary needs.

Primary 1 - 3 children are entitled to free school meals and therefore do not need to come to school with money. 
Primary  4- 7 children who do not recieve school meals should pay the class teacher weekly/daily or parents can sign up to join ParentPay and pay the school online.

Children who have a packed lunch or school dinner are not allowed to leave the premises of the school for health and safety reasons.

School Uniform

At Dens Road Primary and Nursery School, children are expected to attend school wearing appropriate school uniform. This can consist of:

  • A shirt/polo shirt (white or blue).
  • Trousers (black or grey).
  • Skirt or Dresses (black or grey).
  • Cardigans or Jumpers (black or grey)
  • Our school tie.
