Gosforth Central Middle School

School Lunches

Our catering provider is Newcastle City Council.

In response to parent and carer feedback, we have implemented a fixed price menu for school meals to help parents to manage the amount of money being spent each lunchtime.

Your child will  have a choice of five set meal options to choose from, and each meal is a fixed cost of £2.30

There is a selection of snacks and drinks available to buy at break and lunchtimes (see below)

All children will have access to drinking water, free of charge, from the water fountains in the dining hall.

We are confident that our system will make our lunchtime offer more inclusive and accessible to all pupils, and more easily understood by parents and carers. We will continue to review the offer and welcome your feedback to admin@gosforthcent.newcastle.sch.uk
