Academy Lunches

The academy operates a healthy eating policy. 

All children in Foundation Stage and Key stage 1 (Reception to Year 2) receive a free school meal and these are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice. 

Children in Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6) who chose to have a school meal will be charged £2.40 per meal, payable using My Child at School (MCAS app).  If you think your child is eligible for Free School Meals then please see the section below with a link for how to apply.

Children can bring in their own packed lunch if they want to. We promote and encourage a healthy lunch, but please be aware that children will be bringing any rubbish home with them. 

We must be very strict on children not bringing in any items containing nuts, this includes chocolate spread.

Do remember that all children from Reception to Year 2, receive a free school meal so we would encourage you to make use of this benefit.
