Our school meals are provided by North Tyneside Catering Services and are freshly prepared in the school kitchen every morning. They meet the rigorous school food guidelines set out by the Government and are designed to give children exactly the right kind of foods to keep them going until teatime, including lots of energy-giving carbohydrates and at least two of their ‘five a day’ fruit and vegetables.
All children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals, but you must complete an application form to register. If you do not complete a free meal application form you will have to pay for meals from Year 3.
Parents wishing for their children to have school meals should email firstname.lastname@example.org (even if they are entitled to free school meals / universal infant free school meals) as this is not only an online payment facility but an important form of communication.
This is also a great way of monitoring the account for parents/carers – instances where parents can assume pupils are taking and eating their packed lunch for example, however the pupil may of had to take a meal, or taking a meal on Census Day or Christmas Lunch Day, details of which will be communicated in detail and the parent/carer will require this registration to pay for the meals taken and receive communication for their awareness.
