Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Lunches

At lunchtime we encourage children to have an Academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced. We always offer a choice including vegetarian and Halal - menus are available below.

Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch. We ask parents and carers providing packed lunches to choose healthy options with a balanced selection of food including fruit and vegetables, juice and/or water. We do not permit sweets in packed lunches. Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day which can be refilled at our fountains.

We operate a cashless system at the Academy. Parents and carers must prepay for lunches. Free Academy meals are available to families who qualify for this benefit. The reception staff can advise on eligibility.

From Reception to Year 6 we encourage families to allow their children to stay on site at lunchtime although we do allow parents to collect their children for a home lunch. All children in Reception to Year 2 receive a free hot lunch each day. Early Years children have milk and fruit in their classrooms.

In Year 7 to 11 students must remain on site at break and lunchtime. Snacks and sandwiches are available at break time. The lunch time menus are available below.

Sixth Form students are allowed off site at break and lunchtime. They are expected to return in good time for lessons or independent study sessions.
