School Meal Menus

Summer/Autumn 2014 Menu

Your child will have a choice of:

  • soup with a sandwich or
  • one of two main course options
  • 'grab five' packed lunch (ask if this option is available at your school)
  • themed lunches based on projects, curriculum or external events.

These all come with the choice of either the daily dessert, fresh fruit or yoghurt and the choice of water, fruit juice or milk. The current price of a school lunch is £2.

School Uniform

At Tweedbank we are proud of our school and actively encourage children to wear school uniform. We ask for your support in this matter. School uniform prepares children for a purposeful approach to school work and makes a positive contribution towards good discipline. The wearing of school uniform creates a good general impression and enhances the reputation of the school within the local community. This is beneficial to the school and all of its pupils.

Our school colours are red, black and white. School T Shirts, Sweatshirts, Fleeces and Waterproof Jackets are available to order through the office.

As a recognition of their position as senior class in school, P7 pupils only are entitled to wear a black sweatshirt/cardigan instead of the red sweatshirt or cardigan worn by the rest of the school. Children in all classes are asked to wear grey trousers, skirts or pinafore dresses. A polo shirt is worn underneath the sweatshirt or cardigan.

Please make sure children have appropriate safe footwear and warm outdoor clothing as children play outside at break most days.

Please ensure that all items of clothing and personal belongings are clearly named. All children should have indoor shoes to be kept in school. Gym shoes/plimsolls are a good choice and relatively inexpensive. They are also available for use in PE. Children must have a change of clothes for PE activities, tee shirt and shorts or jogging bottoms.
