Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Lunches

At lunchtime we encourage children to have an Academy meal. These are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced. We always offer a choice including vegetarian.

Our academy meals are catered by Sodexo, and should be paid for via the school office. You can view this term's menu here, or pick up a paper copy from the office.

Alternatively children 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. We do not permit sweets in packed lunches.

Taster sessions and theme days

Our wonderful kitchen team often host taster sessions so that parents/carers and children can sample the menu. Previously we have sampled the following: lasagne, gnocci, chickpea curry, apple crumble, and much more! Sound good to you? Stay tuned to find out when we are next hosting a taster session!

What could be better than a taster session? Theme days! We hold several themed school dinners a year, from teddy bear picnics to Chinese New Year to pancake day to everything in-between.

Pitch and Patch

School dinners are overseen daily by resident scarecrows Pitch and Patch. Every day they choose their favourite dish and encourage the children to try it. Pitch is a vegetarian and enjoys spicy food, particularly the chickpea curry. Patch likes to try lots of different meals but their favourite meal is fish and chips! They often share their special recipes to our Facebook page so make sure you are following us so that you don't miss out!
