ISS Education provide catering services at the academy. Their mission is to feed hungry minds! Menus are created based on the principles of the Soil Association’s Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark. The Food for Life Catering Mark criteria have been developed to reflect best practice in healthy and sustainable school food.
All our food is cooked freshly in school on a daily basis.
Each day your child can enjoy the following:
A choice of main meals
A choice of seasonal vegetables
A dessert, piece of fresh fruit or an organic yoghurt
Access to the salad bar, crusty bread and drinking water
Payment for dinner monies are made through our Parentpay facility.
The cost of a school dinner if your child is in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 (Key Stage 2) is £2.20 per day (£11.00 per week).
