Children may choose to have a school meal, bring a packed lunch or go home.
School meals are cooked on the premises. We are a Healthy School and have achieved a Healthy Eating Award, therefore we operate within the guidelines of this award.
We ask that if paying for school meals, then the whole week’s meals should be paid for on a Monday morning at the school office (£2 per meal). The school operates the usual Free School Meals entitlement. School meals are provided by Gateshead School Meals Service, and menus are available at the school or online here.
Packed lunches should be brought to school in the morning and stored in the appropriate place until lunchtime. We do not allow fizzy drinks, sweets or any kind of chocolate bars or chocolate products in the children’s packed lunches. Parents are asked to provide a healthy alternative to these foods by giving their children sugar-free still drinks, water, fruit, dried fruit, jelly tubs, yoghurts, etc. Advice on healthy alternatives for packed lunches can be accessed in school.
