We are proud to work with Chartwells Schools for your children’s school dinners. Chartwells believe that the key to fuelling young minds comes from understanding both what they need and what they enjoy, which is why they develop nutritious and delicious food that pupils love, alongside helping to ensure a healthy body and mind. Their passionate chefs work closely with us to ensure every child receives a nutritionally balanced meal at school, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements.
They create menus that are delicious, seasonal and healthy, using carefully selected ingredients, helping to reduce waste and build a more sustainable world for our future generations.
Chartwells Schools dedicates time and resources to education surrounding mental and physical wellbeing, including nutrition and food habits, to encourage our pupils to engage with, learn, and enjoy food while developing crucial social skills. Chartwells’ Food Super Heroes make food education fun, whatever the age, and their tasty theme days encourage children to make the most of their school meal. To find out more about Chartwells, visit their website or contact the school catering team.
We know that feeding children with food allergies or intolerance can cause a lot of anxiety for both parents and schools. That’s why Chartwells have implemented a market-leading
allergens process, and make sure every step is taken to ensure that our students can enjoy school meals safely with their friends. More information on their medical diet process can be found here. (Email address is email@example.com.
School Meal Charge
A school meal costs £2.41 per day (£2.50 wef 1 September 2023). We ask that all meals are paid for in advance on a least a weekly basis. Cash or cheques payable to Durham County Council, should be placed in an envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name, amount and purpose. Secure letter boxes are available in the entrance foyer and corridor for envelope deposits. Everyone is encouraged to use the letter boxes to post any payments in order to keep them secure.
