Are school meals available ?
Very good school meals are available from our own school kitchen. Provision is made for those who prefer to bring packed lunches. Special diets are available within reason if medical evidence is supplied.
The school supports the guidance given to it in the Education Services Health Policies. Through environmental study topics on health and support given to healthy eating initiatives, Inverkip School, embraces the promotion of the Health Promoting School ethos. Pupils are encouraged to have greater health awareness, to be involved in the numerous physical activities offered and to become discerning in their diet.
Inverkip Primary was awarded 'Health Promoting School' status in May 2009.
