Free School Meals & Healthy Eating

Research shows that pupils are more likely to concentrate in lessons if they have eaten a nutritionally balanced meal at lunchtime. By choosing to take-up an academy lunch, not only will you be saving yourself the time of preparing a packed lunch every day, you can also be sure that your child is getting the range and amount of food that will help contribute to their health and well-being. On average parents spend £400 on packed lunches per year for each child, which is money that could be spent on other things.

If you require support completing claim forms please contact the Academy on (10472) 310015 and we will endeavour to assist or signpost you to the appropriate support.
