School Lunches

At Rothbury First School, school lunches are cooked daily on site and are served in our Dining Hall.
We follow the Northumberland County Council's menu which follows a three-weekly rotation and which offers a balanced, nutritious two-course meal. If you have any queries about the menu, please either call in to speak to our Unit Manager, Mrs Alison Bolton, or call in to the School Office.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a daily school meal under the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meal initiative.
