School Meal Information

Free School Meals Application Form

School meals are prepared on site via Newcastle City Cuisine. Menus follow a three week cycle (see below) and are carefully designed to provide a healthy balanced meal. Vegetable, salad and fruit are available each day.  The cost per day is £2.20 or £11 per week.


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a Universal Infant Free School Meal.  If your child in Years 3 - 6 is not eligible for a free school meal then school meals must be paid for in advance of your child having the meal.  Payments are made online via the parent portal.


If your child is eligible for a free school meal, please apply, even if your child prefers a packed lunch.  This helps the school receive more funding to support your child's education. It may also mean you could access meal vouchers in the holidays and help with PE Kit, among other things. It is worth a minimum of £360 per year per child to you.  A Free School Meal Application Form and instructions to apply online can be found here:

Lunch Bands 

We operate a lunch band system in school. Children will decide on their meal after the morning register and choose either a red, green, blue or yellow meal option.  If your child will be late in due to an appointment then your child may choose their meal a day beforehand. Meal choices and allergens are shown below which will allow you to sit with your child and visually see the options they may want to choose each day.  If your child has any special dietary requirements, please ensure you talk to your child about their daily meal choices and advise them on their selection.  Our school staff will not question children about their choice of coloured band so children will always be given the meal they have chosen.


Allergen Information
In accordance with allergens legislation introduced on 13th December 2014 the kitchen staff hold all the relevant information on the 14 listed allergens that need to be identified as ingredients in a dish. Further information is available on request.


Packed Lunch

If your child brings packed lunch, please ensure it is in a clearly marked container. No glass bottles, nuts, fizzy drinks, chocolate or sweets please!  Please remember that we are a 'Nut Free School' so NO NUTS!


School Milk

School milk is available free of charge to Nursery children.


Water Bottles

It is school policy to encourage pupils to drink plenty of water. Pupils are provided with their own water bottles to use in school and should not bring their own in to school.  Water bottles are labelled, for children's individual use and cleaned regularly.

Menu for 23-24. Includes Halal options. Most dietary needs can be catered for.
