School Meals

School meals at West View Primary School are provided by our catering team at a cost of £2.13 per day or £10.65 per week.  Here, your child will have a choice from a range of hot and cold food.  Click here for the Autumn/Winter Menu: Primary School Menu | Hartlepool Borough Council

As we are a cashless school, payment should be made directly via ParentPay at the beginning of each week.  If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, lunch is provided free of charge as part of the Universal Free School Meal offer.

If you feel that you are entitled to free school meals for any school age child, please contact 01429 284188 or visit Primary School Meals | Primary School Meals | Hartlepool Borough Council

Even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and receiving free meals as part of the universal offer, you should still check your eligibility for free meals as school will receive further income to support your child with their learning.

Of course, if you choose, your child may bring a packed lunch instead of having a school meal.  As we promote healthy eating, we ask you not to send chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks in your child’s lunchbox but provide them with a healthy and balanced meal.

Please note that non-payment of dinner money will trigger a reminder via Parent Pay.  In order to support parents from building up school meal debt, where money has not been received by the given deadline, parents will be required to provide their child with a packed lunch until the debt is cleared. Any persistent and unresolved debts will be referred to the Trust’s finance team.



Children in our Early Years Foundation Stage have daily access to milk, should they wish to drink it.  It is also readily available in the school hall for older children to drink at lunchtimes.



Children across school are offered fruit or toast as they arrive on a morning and at break time. We are so fortunate to have all of our bread provided free of charge by Greggs at Powlett Road, Hartlepool. We are also provided with funding each term in order to purchase fruit, yoghurts and spreads for our toast. This is all part of the Greggs Foundation: we are delighted to be working with them for the first time this year. More information can be found here: Greggs Foundation

Please do let us know if your child has any particular allergies so that we can take this into consideration when providing food.
