Chester-le-Street CE Primary School


School Meals 

We are proud to work with Chartwells Schools for your children’s school dinners. Chartwells
believe that the key to fuelling young minds comes from understanding both what they need
and what they enjoy, which is why they develop nutritious and delicious food that pupils love,
whilst helping to ensure a healthy body and mind.
Their passionate culinary experts work closely with us to ensure every child receives healthy
food, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements.
Chartwells’s Food Super Heroes make food education fun, whatever the age, and their tasty
theme days encourage children to make the most of their school meal.

Medical Diets

We know that feeding children with food allergies or intolerance can cause a lot of anxiety for both parents and schools. That’s why Chartwells have implemented a market-leading Internal allergens process, and make sure every step is taken to ensure that our students can enjoy school meals safely with their friends. More information on their medical diet process can be found here.


Schools meals should be ordered in advance via Parent Pay. Follow our pre order guide for step by step instructions.
