School Meals

School Meals

Our school meals are cooked on the premises and reflect the national initiative of “Healthy Eating”. Our school cook, Ms Smith, provides a varied menu with lots of options, from which the children can choose.

A school meal currently costs £2.10 per child which includes a main course, dessert and a drink.  Meals should be paid for each Monday in advance of meals taken. Please see our section Parentpay for information on how to set up an account to make online payments at your convenience. Payments can be made weekly, monthly or termly. 

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, the meals provision is limited. Please click below to download the latest lunch menu for Eldon Grove Academy.

Medically Prescribed Diets

If your child requires a medically prescribed diet such as gluten, egg or milk free due to an allergy or intolerance to certain foods, you must contact Catering Services (see below for contact details).

Catering Services need to speak to parents/carers directly so in addition to advising the school of your child’s allergies you must also contact North Tyneside Council’s Catering Services Team to arrange an appointment to discuss your child’s specific dietary requirements.

Telephone: 0191 643 8355
