School Dinners


Our school lunches are provided by Sunderland City Council. All lunches provide the children with a balanced, nutritious and healthy meal. They are specifically designed to provide children with the energy and nutrition they require across the whole school day.

Children can choose from a variety of freshly cooked main meals (including vegetarian options), a dessert and a drink.

All meals are ordered in advance via the Evolve online system. Please speak to the School Office if you have any queries.

Take a look at the menu below, or download a copy. The menu operates on a 3-week cycle.
