The academy is committed to providing healthy and nutritious food options for all students at all times, in line with national targets and recommended standards. We are proud to hold the Bronze award for Healthy Schools.
For the start of September 2020, we are doing things a little differently and the range of menu options will be reduced. The Canteen and Cube will be open at break and lunchtime for service and pre-packaged ‘grab and go’ food will be available to purchase. The same food will be served in both locations and payment for food will be via the normal fingerprint method. There is hand sanitiser available for use in each location and hand washing facilities nearby. Students may also bring their own packed lunch.
Our ‘grab and go’ menus will still:
- establish and encourage good dietary habits
- encourage students to make informed decisions about their health
- make a significant contribution to nutrient intake
- enhance the health and well-being of students
- provide an enjoyable, value-for-money choice for all.
Fresh water fountains are situated across the campus and chilled drinking water is available free at all times in the Canteen. Fresh bread and fruit are always available at a low price.
Our catering is cashless, using a bio-metric system, which can be paid for in advance via the internet on ParentMail. Contact the academy’s Student Services Team for more details on cashless catering and payment if there are any problems. Telephone: 01908 626176/157/167
Students should come to see for themselves what a fantastic range of food is on offer.
For packed lunches brought in from home, we encourage parents to ensure that the lunch items are balanced, healthy, nutritious and from a range of food groups.
