Healthy and Nutritious Lunches
We know that enjoying a nutritious hot meal at lunchtime is always better value than a packed lunch. It is easy to work out how much money you will save by not having to buy and make up packed lunches every day and for the time you save every morning too.
Another important factor is that the meals Aspens serve are nutritionally balanced and they provide a choice of healthy meals. Our meals are £2.10 per day and freshly cooked and delivered to the site by our caterers Aspens. We have healthy options available each day and have themed meal days too such as Italian day.
Parents need to book their child’s meals through Parent Pay. The menus are uploaded in advance (usually a minimum of a half term at a time).
Our menu is on a three week cycle and changes bi-annually:
Children in Reception to Year 2 are eligible for Universal Free School Meals. Parents with children in these classes must book the meals through Parent Pay but you will not be asked for payment.
For parents of children in other years that are eligible for Free School Meals (and have had their eligibility confirmed by the Academy), meals must still be booked through Parent Pay but no payment will be requested.
The cost of the lunches is currently £2.10 per meal
If you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch, then please provide a nutritionally balanced lunch. If you do prefer your child to have a hot meal, then please note there is not an option to drop this off for your child at lunchtime and you will need to pay for a hot lunch.
We promote healthy eating programme at the academy and advise that you provide a healthy lunch for your child. We encourage foods that are healthy:
- Milk & Yogurt
- Wholemeal Foods
Food that are not allowed in the school:
- Soda/Fizzy and/or sugary drinks
- Sweets & Chocolate
- Junk Food
Please ensure your child does not bring these items into the academy as they will be confiscated and returned at the end of the academy day.
