Lunch Time

When children arrive in school each morning, their class teacher will take a dinner register where they will record what each child is having for lunch. Children can either have a school meal, their own packed lunch from home or they can be collected and taken home to eat their lunch at home.

If pupils order a school dinner (any option), a charge of £2.15 is automatically applied to their parent’s ParentPay account. If your child regularly has school dinners, please make sure your ParentPay account has credit available. If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, ParentPay automatically credits the cost of each meal so you won’t be charged.

Newport City Council works with a company called ‘Chartwells‘ to provide a nutritious, freshly cooked, affordable meals each day.

Their dinner menu can be downloaded below, and more information can be found on the Chartwell’s website.

If your child is having a school meal, they can choose from six options: a school hot meal (Red choice), a sandwich meal (Blue or Purple choice), a school halal meal (Yellow choice), a school vegetarian meal (Green choice) or a school jacket potato (Orange choice).

Your child will tell their teacher their choice during registration in the morning. 

School Meals cost £2.15 each day and are paid for using ParentPay. Each time your child orders a school meal, your ParentPay account will be automatically charged. Please make sure that your ParentPay account is in credit and topped up before your child orders a school meal. You should check it regularly to see when your child has ordered a school meal. If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, ParentPay will automatically credit their account each time they order a school meal.

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, your child may be eligible for free school meals.

School kitchens are inspected as part of the national food hygiene ratings system – follow the link and put in our school name or postcode to view the school’s current food hygiene rating.

Autumn 20 Primary Menu Covid Hot Box_compressed

From Monday 5th October, two year groups at a time will be able to order a hot meal each day (see below). We will expand this to three year groups each day the following week (from 12th Oct.) and four year groups each day the following week (from 19th Oct.). The meals will be served in a take-away style container and delivered to the classrooms at lunch time. Children eligible for Free School Meals will be able to continue ordering their sandwich meals each day. For the next three weeks, the only options will be the meals listed below. We aim for the full Chartwells menu to be fully available to all year groups from Monday 2nd November (week after half term). We will provide parents with a copy of this menu in our half-term newsletter. If you would like your child to have a school meal on the day that they are available to their year group, your child will need to tell their teacher on that morning when the dinner registers are taken.
