We have achieved National Healthy Schools Status which is very important to our school community in promoting healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. Our school Governors ensure that we made this standard as an outstanding school in line with Ofsted and Middlesbrough Council in improving healthy lifestyles of Middlesbrough children.
We ask all of our families to support the school in ensuring that our high standards are upheld at all times. School meals are cooked on the premises and are of a very high standard and fully conform to all food hygiene and school food standards. Payment is made in advance using Parent Pay. Our catering company is Caterlink and we also have a head of catering based at NPCAT headquarters.

If you wish your child to change from school dinners to packed lunches then we ask for two weeks notice directly to the school office.

My child needs a special diet, are you able to feed him/her?
Special diets can be catered for and can be discussed with our SENDCO, as well as our school cook. Examples may include Diabetic, Coeliac and Low Fat diets. Please feel free to contact your child’s class teacher or Mrs Eddies, Mrs Longstaff or Mrs Voyzey to discuss how we can meet your child’s dietary needs through our school dinners.
In order for us to provide a child with special dietary requirements, however, we must have written confirmation from the Paediatric Dietician that the child is under. They can forward us the necessary medical dietary information to enable our cooks to provide your child with the appropriate meals.
We are a healthy school and in line with Ofsted criteria we actively promote healthy eating and healthy living with our Children. Children may bring a packed lunch and a drink (Water or juice for lunchtime) for their midday meal. Drinks should be brought in a plastic container or unbreakable plastic flask. Fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate are not permitted and lunches should contain no nuts as we have a number of children in the school with nut allergies. Packed lunches must be brought in a suitable lunch box, clearly labelled on the outside. No hot food is allowed in a packed lunch.
All children have access to free fruit during morning break and can also access their water bottles.
Water at School
Children have their own bottle of water supplied by school and are encouraged to drink water throughout the day and at appropriate times during a lesson. Research has shown that this helps to keep the children more alert and focused during the school day. No juice, flavoured water or fizzy drinks are allowed in the classrooms.
