School meals are provided by Catering Dept. Telford and Wrekin Council.
Newport Junior School has a kitchen on site where all meals are prepared and cooked daily; we also provide meals for other schools. Mrs Hodson our Cook in Charge and her staff present a balanced menu which reflects the seasons. Main course and puddings are available on a daily basis as are a selection of fresh vegetables, salads, fresh fruit and yoghurts. The menus change over on a three weekly cycle. Vegetarian, ethnic and special medical diets are catered for. There is a rota so that Year groups take it turn to have first choice.
Payment for meals is direct to the kitchen staff at lunchtime and may be either in cash (which must be kept by your child in a named purse) or by cheque, made payable to ‘Borough of Telford and Wrekin Council’ with your name and address on the back of the cheque. Meals may be paid for daily, weekly, monthly or termly.
Sandwich boxes are stored during the day near the classroom and lunch is eaten in the school hall.
