Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Lunches

We are a healthy eating school
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.

Please click here to view the current menu.

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, and 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.  

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