Gosforth Central Middle School

School Lunches

From 25th April 2022, the school meals catering service will be provided by Facility Services, part of Newcastle City Council.

25 Mar 2022 Letter From Newcastle City Council

As part of the process of changing catering provider, we have reviewed the type of menu on offer. 

In order to simplify the system for the children, and (in response to parent and carer feedback) to manage the amount of money being spent each lunchtime, we have moved to a fixed price menu for school meals.

Your child will now 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 these changes 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
