School Dinners

Newlands Spring Primary School is a healthy school, committed to providing good quality nutritional home cooked meals for all our children. All our food is cooked daily, in our newly refurbished school kitchen, using fresh ingredients bought from local suppliers. 

Menus are varied to cater for all tastes, with a meat and vegetarian option available daily. The menus are cooked on a 3 weekly menu cycle and meals are ordered on a daily basis and cost £2.10 per day. Meals should be paid preferably on-line or by cash/cheque in advance.

Every meal served at Newlands Spring primary School is fully nutritionally monitored and meets the Government Food and Nutritional Based Standards.

The catering team have recently been re-awarded with the 5 Star Award for Excellent Food and Hygiene Standards.

Healthy Eating

Many children choose to bring a packed lunch and we encourage these to be as healthy as possible. Fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate are not allowed in packed lunches. For the safety of children with allergies products containing nuts are not allowed in packed lunches.

We encourage children to bring a bottle of water to school each day and we have installed cold water dispensers around the school. Part of the cost of these is donated to AquaAid.

At morning play every infant child is given a free piece of fruit or vegetable and junior children are welcome to bring their own piece of fruit or vegetable. The remains of these snacks are composted by our eco-monitors
