School Meals


At lunch time children can have either a school meal that is prepared each day in our school kitchen or bring a packed lunch from home. Here at Aspire Academies Trust we always encourage the children to be aware of how important our eating habits are to help us grow, learn, sleep and play. We have placed all our fruit and salads in such a way to make them an attractive choice. The children can have unlimited fruit and vegetables. The daily jacket potatoes and fillings are very popular. We do not use salt in our recipes and keep sugar to a minimum.

We listen to all our customers, be it younger children or staff and build our menus accordingly. All of our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers with deliveries daily to ensure freshness. Our fish is MSC approved and our meat from Red Tractor assured farms. Our fruit and vegetables come from a local supplier who visits New Covent Garden market at 2am every day…. we simply could not get better produce.

All this ensures that our catering teams stand proudly at the serveries happy to see the children tucking in to freshly cooked, tasty meals. We are fully compliant with the Governments School Food Standards and all our kitchens are 5 star rated.


If you are providing your child with a packed lunch we ask that you do not include nut products, including peanut butter and Nutella, as some of our children suffer from severe nut allergies.

Our school lunch menu caters for children who have dietary requirements but please speak to the office staff if you have any queries.

All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to free school meals.
