Each half term parents/carers will be sent home meal choice letters to choose the choice of school meal or packed lunch for their child/children for the coming half term. The choice is fixed for the half term for every school day during that half term.
The menus for our Academy lunches during the year are attached below. The price of the meals is still £2.00 per day for those who do not receive free school meals.
There are payment envelopes in our reception for your convenience. We would be grateful if you could pay the Academy on a Friday in advance if possible.
There are 3 new menus effective week commencing 3rd September 2018. The 3 week rota of meals may be subject to change later in the year. Any updates will be posted on our website. Dates for each menu week are listed below. Click on the link to see the full list of menus.

Free School Meals
From September 2014, there will be a statutory requirement for schools in England to provide free school meals to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Whilst all pupils in these year groups will be provided with a free school meal, it is important that, if you think you are eligible to receive a free school meal, you continue to apply to the Nottinghamshire Local Authority.
Existing entitlements to free school meals for disadvantaged pupils in nursery classes and at Key Stages 2-4 will continue as they do now, based on the existing free school meals eligibility criteria:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs)
- Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after parents stop qualifying for the Working Tax Credit
There will be no change to the process for applying for free school meals. Families receiving a qualifying benefit must continue to apply to Nottinghamshire County Council.
