At lunchtime we encourage students to have an academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced. We always offer a choice including vegetarian and Halal.
The academy canteen offers a great selection of healthy eating meals, in line with our healthy lifestyles focus at school. Alternatively students 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. These will help your child to stay healthy and to concentrate in lessons. We kindly ask that parents do not place sweets in packed lunches. Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day which can be refilled at our fountains.
How do I pay for school meals?
School meals are paid for using a cashless system at the academy. To find out more about biometric payments, please read the attached information letter.
