School Meals

Dinner money is collected at 9 a.m. each Monday morning from the children who stay for paid meals.  Dinner money is banked by security collection.  Therefore, it is essential that all children pay their dinner money by 9 a.m. each Monday morning, or on the first day back after a holiday or absence.

Some families will be eligible to receive free school meals.  Application forms can be completed at the Welfare Benefit Section, Civic Centre, Gateshead. Tel: 0191 4333000.  It is essential that documentary evidence of income support is supplied at this time.

Instead of taking school dinners, children may either bring a packed lunch or go home at lunch times.  For security reasons we ask parents to put in writing if your child is to go home at lunchtimes.
