This week is National School Meals Week.

The last twelve months have seen the academy review its menus to meet the School Food Standards and receive certification for our Autumn 2023 and Spring 2024 menus.

Our aim is for all students to have a healthy hot dinner every day and to encourage more of our KS4 students to eat in our canteen we will be inviting them to help us develop our menus for Summer 2024.

Throughout the year the academy has themed menu days and this year we have planned themed menus for Diwali, Christmas, Chinese New Year and World Day for Cultural Diversity.

Our daily menus are nutritional and diverse, offering cuisine from around the world alongside a weekly traditional roast dinner and fish and chip Friday.

We have reduced our food offer at break time and offer smaller, healthier snacks that are fruit or oat based. This is for two reasons; we want students to opt into the free breakfast scheme and fill up before lessons start and we then want them to have access to a smaller, healthier snack at break but be hungry at lunch for a healthy, filling meal.
