Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle and a clear understanding of their own dietary needs is something that we believe all our children should have access to from Reception to Yr6.

Breakfast Club

To ensure our children have the best possible start everyday we have opened a Breakfast Club which provides children with a range of healthy cereals, toast, drink and fruit and a series of activities designed to help them focus and prepare for their academy day.  Charge for this is £1 per day.

Academy Tuck Shop

All of our children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive free fruit as part of their mid-morning snack. Our tuck shop also allows children to purchase a variety of healthy items. Children in Reception receive free milk.

In Key Stage 2 children can purchase a variety of healthy items at break time..

Water Bottles

All children are provided with a water bottle when they join the Academy which is refilled daily and enables them to access water throughout the day.

Lunchtimes

All meals are prepared on site by our skilled catering team.  Our menus are designed to provide a healthy balance.  Our menus take into account the various needs of our children and include vegetarian options. 

As part of our commitment to a healthy lifestyle children are provided with a fresh salad bar and they are encouraged to choose a selection of fresh vegetables and fruit to accompany their meal.

All school dinners should be paid for in advance via your child's ParentPay account.  (You will be given log in details when your child joins the Academy).

Free School Meals

If you or your partner receives income support (IS), Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA), or benefit support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 your child may be entitled to free school meals. Your child may also be entitled to free school meals if you are receipt of Child Tax Credit (but not entitled to working tax credit) and have an income not exceeding £16,190. Please contact the academy office for help, advice and an application form.

Packed Lunches

Packed lunches are welcome in our academy, please send lunches in a named, sealed, non-breakable container. Please ensure that your child is eating a balanced diet this could include sandwiches, a piece of fruit and a drink. We ask that children only bring one treat item per day (small cake, biscuit or crisps.) Please do not send chocolate, fizzy pop, cans or glass bottles.
