School Meals

Our tasty and nutritious school meals are cooked on the premises by our talented Chef, Mrs Battista.
They provide a well-balanced meal which complies with the highest standards and are very popular with our children.
 
The below menu is indicative of the choice children have.
 
Mrs Battista also runs regular celebration meals, e.g. for Halloween, Christmas, and aligned to children's topics. All children have the opportunity to choose to take these special meals, even if they usually opt for a packed lunch.
For children in years 3 and 4 meals cost £2.00 per day or £1.90 for nursery school meals. This is for a standard two course meal which includes a drink.
Funding Entitlement - Free School meals
Funding mechanisms to school budgets have changed over the recent years. Whether your child prefers packed lunch, is entitled and takes a Universal Free School Meal (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) or has a paid school meal (Nursery and Years 3 and 4), it is important for all parents to check their eligibility and apply for a Free School Meal.
 
If your child is entitled to a free school meal Pupil Premium funding will be paid into the school budget which can then be used to support your child’s education. Parents may assume that they need not apply if there child is in Reception, Year 1 and 2 and entitled to a free school meal anyway but they do need to apply to access the additional pupil premium funding to support their child.
 
Therefore in order to ensure children do receive the funding they are entitled to and the school receives the correct funding please could all parents check against the eligibility criteria and apply accordingly (if you have not done so already in previously). You can access the online for via this link https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/education-and-learning/benefits-and-educational-grants/free-school-meals or an application form can be collected from the wall wallet in the main entrance to school.
