All meals provided at Biddick Primary and Nursery are freshly cooked on the premises each day by our experienced
kitchen team- led by Mrs Tait. Meals are based around the menus devised by Sunderland Schools' Catering Service.
The menus are appealing and varied, and at the same time offer high nutritional standards.

Reception, Years 1 and 2:
Every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will receive a free school meal. This government funded initiative will give these
children access to a hot and nutritious meal at lunch time, with the aim of teaching healthier eating habits, boosting children's
performance in school and saving families money. In Sunderland, families will save approximately £380 per child, per year.
Key Stage 2:
The price of a school meal is £2.20 (one of the lowest priced school meals both regionally and nationally). Meals should be paid for
in advance on a Monday morning. Payment should be sent via your child’s teacher in a sealed envelope with your child's name,
class and the amount enclosed. Application forms for free school meals for children in Years 3-6 are available from the
school office or by downloading the following Free_School_Meals_Application.pdf. You can also complete and
submit an application electronically using the Apply for Free School Meals link. If you are unsure whether your child is eligible for
free school meals please refer to the Free school meals page. All applications are treated in confidence. In addition, if you are
eligible for free meals, but decide not to receive them, it is very important that you still advise the office. Again, this will be treated in confidence.
