Proud to learn, proud to achieve
At Barnes Junior School our pupils have a number of options with regards to lunchtime arrangements:
As a school we try to encourage our children to be healthy. If you decide to provide your child with a packed lunch from home, we ask that you do not include fizzy pop or chocolate bars as part of their packed lunch (flavoured water and biscuits are acceptable).
Our school lunches are prepared and cooked on site by our fantastic team of on-site caterers. Special dietary requirements are catered for wherever possible - please contact the School Office to discuss any special requirements your child may have. Children do have the option of changing from dinner to packed lunch and vice versa, we do ask for a minimum of 1 week's notice via the School Office or a note/e-mail from home.
From September 2018, Years 3 and 4 will be on lunch break from 11.45-12.45 and Years 5 and 6 12.15-13.15.
The below link details the School Meals menu:
The price of a school meal is £2.20 per day (£11 per week). Dinner money is payable each Monday morning by online via the Sunderland City Council website, or via the SchoolComms app. Please note: as of September 2019 the school office will no longer be accepting cash payments.
If you prefer, you can make advance payment of a full half term - a message is sent at the beginning of each half term detailing the cost.
