Our school lunches are provided by Sunderland City Council. There is a Winter and a Summer menu. All lunches provide the children with a balanced, nutritious and healthy meal.
The menus for nursery school children and primary school pupils are specifically designed to provide children with the energy and nutrition they require across the whole school day. Children can choose from a variety of freshly cooked main meals (including vegetarian options) that change on a daily basis over a 3-week menu cycle. They can also choose a dessert and a drink.
In addition there is a 'filling station' option where children can choose from a selection of lighter bites, such as filled jacket potatoes, homemade soup and sandwich, paninis, pizza and pasta sauces.
The Sunderland school meals service has achieved the Bronze Food for Life Served Here award for our primary school menus. This is a national award that sets out a series of quality standards that must be met to ensure menus are fresh, healthy, tasty and sustainable.
If your child is in reception, year 1 or year 2, then they are entitled to a free school meal courtesy of the Universal Free School Meal Initiative.
Information on free school meal eligibility for children whose parents are in receipt of benefits can be found at Together for Children - free school meals.
Otherwise the price of a meal is £2.30 per day (£11.50 for a 5-day week).
