Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Lunches

The Academy operates a healthy eating policy. 

At lunchtime we encourage students to have an Academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice.

Each child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be provided with a free lunch as part of the Governments Universal Free School Meal Initiative.

Menus are available in the main office.

Alternatively students in Key Stage 2 may bring a packed lunch. Please note that students are not allowed to bring sweets into the Academy at any time in line with the healthy eating policy. Students should bring plain water to drink during the day in labelled bottles. These should be taken home and refilled each day.

For information on how you can pay for your child's Academy lunches please see our Parent Pay page.
