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.
School Meals Menus – Schools have chosen either a hot or cold single choice menu that can be served in the classroom or the dining room or a combination of both to maintain pupil bubbles.
Your child will be provided with an individually packaged lunch that has been prepared with minimal handling.
