School Lunches


Click here for the 2 week School Menu - updated in January 2022


A two-course meal is provided daily and children are offered a choice of food. Menus are designed to meet the nutritional needs of young children. Special meals can be provided for dietary conditions by contacting the Local Authority Catering Services. For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 meals are provided free of charge, this is known as Universal Free School Meals. Other children may also be eligible for Free School Meals and should apply via the North Tyneside Council website. 


For parents who wish to pay for school meals, the ParentPay system for school meal payments has replaced JOINOS. ParentPay is managed by North Tyneside Catering Services, please contact if you have any queries and/or to set up an account to pay for your school meals. Please include your child’s name and school in the email.

Provision is also made for children who prefer to bring packed lunch. However, for safety reasons we ask that children do not bring breakable containers such as glass bottles or hot drinks.
