Healthy meals for healthy children

We pride ourselves on providing, healthy, nutritious meals that give our children all they need for healthy lives and to focus on learning (and playing) as best they can. We provide organic options where possible, along with a vegetarian option every day.

You/your child can choose from our lunch which covers a main, with two vegetables and a pudding or choose on the day from the Deli Bar menu which provides a wide range of sandwiches, salads, pasta or pizzas. Dinners cost £2.30 and can be paid for via School Money or via the blue post box in the academy reception.

Free school meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 automatically get free school meals. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school as this can help their child’s school to attract additional ‘pupil premium’ funding to support learning. From Year 3 onwards, children whose parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits are entitled to free school meals:

  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (IBSJA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (IRESA)
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit,( provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – ( the payment you get for a further 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
