From September 2017 our catering provider will be Mellors. Mellors have wealth of experience delivering catering services to schools across the whole of the north of England. They have a strong track record in providing an attractive and varied range of meals each day that are healthy and nutritious. We are delighted to bring them into St Thomas More RC Academy and look forward to working with them for years to come.
The dining hall is open for service from 8am and throughout the day.
Whilst we do have a range of drinks for purchase in the dining hall, we also provide two water dispensers from which students can fill their own water bottle at no cost.
Free school meals
If you feel you may be entitled to free school meals for your child please contact North Tyneside Council. Applications can be made on-line or by calling (0191) 643 2288.
Parents may want to note that students in receipt of a free school meal are able to choose their meal daily from the same menu as all other students do. Furthermore, as we will be moving to a cashless system for school meals in 2017-18, there will be no means of distinguishing between those students in receipt of a free meal and those not.
In addition to the daily free nutritious meal for the student, the school also receives significant additional funding from central government for every child who is signed up for a free school meal. We would therefore encourage all parents who believe their child may be eligible for a free school meal to apply – even if you think this may be for only a short period of time, or if you think your child may choose not to take the free meal each day.
