Dear Parent or Guardian,
School Meal Price increase – £2.20 per day, from Monday 16th April 2018
I am writing to inform you that from Monday 16th April 2018, the school meal price will increase to £2.20 per day or £11.00 per week. Our school meals are provided by Gateshead Council’s School Catering Service. The service has faced rising labour and food costs yet has not increased the price of a meal for the past 3 years. They uphold a number of accreditations which serve to reassure customers of their commitment to quality, sustainability and animal welfare as well as supporting local businesses:
- Customer Service Excellence
- Red Tractor Assured Food Standards
- Soil Association: Food for Life Served Here
School meals should be paid for in advance. Paying weekly or for longer periods helps the school make best use of valuable secretarial time, and is much appreciated. If you think you may be entitled to free school meals please contact 0191 433 3729 for more information.
If you would like to know more about school meals or to see a menu, please visit www.gateshead.gov.uk/schoolmeals or ring the school meals free helpline 0800 169 2780.
School meals are an excellent choice for lunchtime and I hope that you will support the service in our school.
J A Jones Head Teacher
