Stanhope Primary

School Lunch

We are delighted to let you know from September we will be catering our own school meals. This means decisions with regards to what we prepare and serve will be solely down to how children respond to the menu’s prepared. We intend to bring children a range of exciting dishes that are varied and that offers something for everyone. We will provide the hearty, wholesome meals that your child desires. 

This is an exciting venture for the school and we hope children will respond well to the change. With that said please ensure your school meals are paid directly to the school using ParentMail.

We have developed our Autumn term menu, please click on the link below. Meal costs will remain at £2.35 per day.
