Universal Free School Meals
As you may be aware from September 2014, every child in reception, year 1 and year 2 has received a free school meal. This has given your child access to a hot and nutritious meal at lunchtime, with the aim of teaching healthier eating habits, boosting performance in school, and also saving money (in Sunderland families will save approximately £360 per child, per year).

School Meal Price for Key Stage 2
The price of a school meal for pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will stay at £1.90 for the new school year starting in September. This remains one of the lowest prices in the country and represents excellent value for money

The Menu
The menus have been specially designed and tested to ensure your child receives a healthy, balanced diet full of nutrients and vitamins as well as carefully controlling the amount of fat, sugar and salt. The school menu offers your child a wide variety of choices that change every day over a three-week period.
Children have helped to design the menus to ensure that foods they enjoy are served.

Owing to the growing number of dinner money payments being made at the end of the week, can we remind parents that all dinner money should be received on a Monday morning (or the first day in school following inset/bank holidays), in an envelope marked with your child’s name, class and amount enclosed.
Payment can also be made online via the Sunderland council website
