Abstract

At the end of 2021, researchers from Glasgow Caledonian University administered an online survey to find out what secondary school pupils in Scotland thought about school meals. This research was initiated by ASSIST FM (the representative body for public sector caterers in Scotland), with the support of ADES (the Association of Directors of Education in Scotland). This report is exploratory, rather than explanatory. It does not offer prescription on what must change and what must be maintained. Rather, this report summarises what over 15,000 secondary school pupils think and explores variations in opinion and experience across pupils. The aim is to inform and open debate. To that end, this report suggests some issues that are worthy of further consideration.
