Who provides our school meals?
Our school meals are provided through a Service Level Agreement with Mellors Catering https://mellorscatering.co.uk/
Meals are cooked on the school premises each day. Pupils from Reception-Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Universal Infant Free School Meals government funding. For pupils in Nursery, and Y3-Y6, meals cost £2.25 per day and can be paid via our online payment system (ParentPay).
What food is on offer each day?
Currently the school offers a hot and cold service where pupils can choose from a range of choices. In addition, there are vegetarian options each day. The school menus for the summer term can be downloaded below:

How can I organise school meals for my child?
If you access the following form, this will help us to know whether your child will be having a school meal or packed lunch, which days your child will be having a packed lunch and your child’s choice of meal. Parents should make choices with their children for pupils in Nursery-Year 2 but this can also be done with older pupils too. All menu choices are passed onto the cook every week.
The school works with the catering service to ensure that all dietary requirements and allergies are catered for. When you complete medical and dietary information at the start of your child’s time in school, this information will be discussed with you and passed on to the kitchen. If you would like to contact Mellors directly, please see a member of staff and they will be happy to provide you with contact details.
What do I do if I think my child is entitled to free school meals?
Free school meals are also available to children whose parents receive certain benefits. If you feel that your child may be entitled to free school meals, please check the Stockton on Tees website https://www.stockton.gov.uk/children-and-young-people/schools/school-meals/ and speak to Miss Pickering in the school office. If you do meet the criteria, please apply as this will ensure that the school also receives additional funding to support your child’s education.
