Healthy meals for healthy children

Our school lunches are provided by ISS Education.  You can order and pay for your child’s nutritious school dinners from the comfort and convenience of your own home!

It’s easy to register on the Feeding Hungry Minds website.  Once you have registered and your account is live (usually within 48 hours) you can then go ahead and pay for and order your child’s meals in advance.

If your child receives free school meals, or you prefer to pay with cash, you can still go online to choose their meals. Cash payments should be brought to the Academy office.  All payments should be made on the day or in advance. The cost of the meal is £2.15 per day.

If your child has any allergy and/or intolerance you can find out more and complete the special diet application form.

Free school meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 automatically get free school meals. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school as this can help their child’s school to attract additional ‘pupil premium’ funding to support learning.

From Year 3 onwards, children whose parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits are entitled to free school meals:

  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (IBSJA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (IRESA)
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit,( provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – ( the payment you get for a further 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
