Thanks to the teacher who called to make sure our son is ok while he's stuck at home. Really important that all children, but especially those who are vulnerable, are checked on by schools during this time.

A typical lunchtime food offering

This link provides details of the current lunchtime menu service which you can see runs on a three weekly menu cycle.  Our menu has been created after extensive research into student preferences; it is also nutritious and compliant with all government guidelines.

The menu aims to offer more of what students want, including good food that can be eaten on the go as well as themed days to coincide with key dates such as Pancake Day, Burns Night, Diwali, etc.

The catering service includes an offering for breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch.

A typical grab 'n' go food and drink offering

The current tariff pricing is available in this link and demonstrates the full range of food and drink which is available.  The Academy uses a cashless catering system for the food and drink purchases.

Here is a link to the Eatwell Guide (from Public Health England) – this provides a useful overview of what food groups make up a balanced and healthy diet.

If your child has a special diet and/or certain food intolerances, then we have a special diet procedure which contains a form for the parent/carer to complete and return – link here.

Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance. Find out if your child is entitled to free school meals by clicking here.  The free school meal value is £2.25.


Student Attendance

Excellent attendance is the expectation at the Academy.  Students should attend the Academy every day unless they are unwell, in which case parents or carers are expected to contact the Student Information Centre (SIC) before 9am on each morning of absence.

The Student Information Centre (SIC) provides the central provision for student welfare within the Academy and should be your first contact regarding student welfare issues, including any medical issues.  If you have any questions or specific concerns regarding the welfare of your own son/daughter, then please contact the Assistant Principal responsible for Student Welfare.
