For Parents and Carers
Food & Drink
The academy provides pupils with the ‘Chartwells’ meals system. This provides a daily choice of main meal, vegetarian option, or jacket potato. The price of a meal is £2.00 per day. Please send the full weekly amount each Monday accompanied by the menu slip a week prior to take up. The meal service will be explained in more detail when you visit. If you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals please speak to a member of the office staff, who will explain what you need to do to take up your entitlement.
If your child chooses to bring a packed lunch it will be stored on a trolley until lunchtime. Please ensure that the lunchbox is clearly labelled, and that any containers (especially drinks) are securely fastened. Please try to ensure that your child has the appropriate amount of food and that it is a balanced and nutritious meal. Whilst chocolate and crisps may be the food of choice for your child, a poor lunch has an impact on their ability to have a successful afternoon. If your child forgets their lunch we will try to provide a meal which can be paid for later, although we cannot accommodate frequent changes to lunchtime arrangements. We do not have facilities to heat children’s own meals on the academy premises.
