Catering Information and Useful Links
Catering at this academy
The lunch catering service is provided by Chartwells, part of the Compass Group. Chartwells are a well-established and experienced school caterer. The service is provided under contract with Harris Federation.
This link provides details of the current lunchtime menu service which you can see runs on a three weekly menu cycle.
Don't forget, if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 then they can get their lunchtime meal free of charge as part of the universal infant free school meal!
Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance. Find out if your child is entitled to free school meals by accessing this link. The meal value is £2.24.
Here is a link to the Eatwell Guide (from Public Health England) – this provides a useful overview of what food groups make up a balanced and healthy diet.
If your child has a special diet and/or certain food intolerances, then we have a special diet procedure which contains a form for the parent/carer to complete and return – link here.
