welcome to audrey's diner!


Our experienced kitchen staff prepare tasty meals for our children, 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. All of the meals are freshly cooked - with great care and attention - on site at GPS.

Our kitchen team of 4 staff is led by Audrey, an experienced cook who has transformed the quality of lunches since she joined us several years ago.

The new menu for the academic year 2018-19 can be viewed or downloaded here.

Every day we have a fresh salad bar, plus freshly baked bread. We also have milk or cooled mineral water available, so that the children can have a refreshing drink with their meal.

The price of a school meal is £2.00. This is one of the lowest priced school meals both regionally and nationally - but there is certainly no compromise on quality. In terms of value for money and quality, the school meal provision in Sunderland is hard to beat.

You can't beat GPS school dinners!

Here's a message from Sunderland schools' catering service, about the new menus:

New features include:

  • Fresh fruit Thursday – a special feature made of an extended range of fruits, displayed in an attractive and appetising manner
  • The lighter bite Picnic Basket options have been extended to include a range of sandwiches e.g. wraps, sub rolls, paninis, jacket potatoes, pasta pots & salad bowls
  • 'As you like it Pasta Point' – a pasta day whereby children get to choose from a range of popular sauces and various pasta shapes. 

As always we have ensured a good mix of tried and tested traditional favourites whilst incorporating some new dishes in order to keep the offer interesting and hopefully widen the tastes of the children.

Please note:

  • Our food does not contain any undesirable additives, trans fats or genetically modified (GM) ingredients
  • The majority of our dishes are cooked from scratch using unprocessed ingredients
  • We will only use meat that is UK farm assured (Red Tractor) meaning that it is fully traceable and ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare
  • We only use free range eggs
  • We use predominantly local suppliers.
