school lunch at gps - tasty & healthy!

lunchtime

Our experienced kitchen staff prepare tasty meals for our children, based around the menus devised by Sunderland Schools' Catering Service. The menus are appealing and varied, and at the same time offer high nutritional standards. All of the meals are freshly cooked - with great care and attention - on site at GPS.

Our kitchen team of 4 staff is led by Audrey, an experienced cook who has transformed the quality of lunches since she joined us several years ago.

The new menu for the academic year 2019-20 can be viewed or downloaded here.

Every day we have a fresh salad bar, plus freshly baked bread. We also have milk or cooled mineral water available, so that the children can have a refreshing drink with their meal.

School Meals are FREE for Reception, Years 1 and 2: If your child is in Reception, Years 1 or 2 then they are entitled to a free school meal - this is an annual saving of approximately £418 per child. 

For Key Stage 2 (years 3, 4, 5, 6), the price of a school meal is £2.20. This is one of the lowest priced school meals both regionally and nationally - but there is certainly no compromise on quality. In terms of value for money and quality, the school meal provision in Sunderland is hard to beat.

Special Diets: If your child has a special dietary need related to a medical condition, allergy or intolerance and you wish them to have a school meal, please provide a written request to your school from a doctor or dietician. 

Here's a message from Sunderland schools' catering service:

Special features include:

  • Fresh fruit Thursday – an extended range of fruits, displayed in an attractive and appetising manner
  • Lighter bites including filled wraps, a variety of cold sandwiches, hot sub sandwiches and filled jacket potatoes
  • New main meals including popular “street food” items such as Roast Beef Yorkie Wrap and Chilli served in a Cone

As always we have ensured a good mix of tried and tested traditional favourites whilst incorporating some new dishes in order to keep the offer interesting and hopefully widen the tastes of the children.

Please note:

  • Our food does not contain any undesirable additives, trans-fats or genetically modified (GM) ingredients
  • The majority of our dishes are cooked from scratch using unprocessed ingredients
  • We will only use meat that is UK farm assured (Red Tractor) meaning that it is fully traceable and ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare
  • We only use free range eggs
  • We use predominantly local suppliers.
