ALLERGY AWARENESS

Please note, it is extremely important that you inform your child’s academy and Chartwells of any food allergies or intolerances that your child has. We welcome all children with allergies/intolerances and providing we deem it safe to do so, an appropriate meal can be provided daily in line with our internal policies and procedures. This food is prepared in a sanitised area of the academy’s kitchen.

Please see below a special diet form to be completed and returned.

Lunch Menu

In Year R (Reception), Year 1 and Year 2 lunches are FREE thanks to the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. School meals are therefore compulsory for all children in these year groups.

For children in Years 3,4,5 and 6, the price of a delicious school meal is only £2.25 (effective April 2018) and must be booked/pre-ordered and paid for in advance using ParentPay (our online payment service - please see further details via link at the bottom of this page). Please note that this is the only form of payment accepted for school dinners.
The option of a packed lunch is also available for children in Years 3-6. However, strict standards are in place to ensure that the contents of all lunch boxes adheres to the principals of 'School Food Standards'.
