Introduction to the school lunch section from Mrs Reed


I am Julia Reed the catering Manager at Tweedmouth Middle School, I have a Diploma in Catering and Hotel Management and 32 years’ experience within the catering industry.

I have a very capable team within the Kitchen who collectively have 57 years of experience …. So your child is in safe hands over lunchtime!

It is with this knowledge and experience that we welcome the opportunity to provide healthy, exciting and well balanced meals for the pupils and hopefully give back some of our passion for fresh, good food.

We work within the Government Buying Standards policy for school meals to ensure traceability of our food, that all our meat complies with UK animal welfare legislation and that the fish we use is from a sustainable source

We use the school food plan as a basic principal to all our menus, ensuring a well-balanced and nutritious diet.

I will be working with the Food for Life Partnership and the Children’s food Charity Trust to gain recognised school food awards for Tweedmouth Middle School

I welcome all feedback from Pupils, Parents and teaching staff, to keep moving forward we need to know what we are doing well, and areas where we can improve (Please use the contact us form to send us your feedback)

Information for parents regarding School dinners and food allergies & food types intolerance.

Food Allergies & intolerance can often be difficult to identify in children and it is something that we aim to work closely with parents & health practitioners to rule in or rule out as part of any dietary intolerance that children at our school may be experiencing. Furthermore we would always want to seek to provide tasty and nutritious free-from foods to anyone who has a food allergy/intolerance at our school. Some of the most common food allergies/intolerances are as follows.

  • Nut Allergies 
  • Gluten Intolerance 
  • Lactose Intolerance 

If you feel that your child may have a food allergy/intolerance then the first step is to consult your doctor for advice.

Please contact us with any further concerns that you have concerning school dinners and to raise food allergy/intolerance concerns.
