Healthy Life Style
Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle and a clear understanding of their own dietary needs is something that we believe all our children should have access to from Nursery to Yr6.
To ensure our children have the best possible start everyday we have opened a Breakfast Club which provides children with a range of healthy cereals, toast, drink and fruit and a series of activities designed to help them focus and prepare for their academy day.
Breakfast Club is accessible from our Eddish Road entrance, doors open from 8:00am until 8:30am.
Academy Tuck Shop
All of our children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive free fruit as part of their mid-morning snack. Our tuck shop also allows children to purchase orange juice in Year 1 and Year 2. Children in Nursery and Reception receive free milk.
In Key Stage 2 children can purchase slices of toast and small cartons of clear flavoured, still water.
All children are provided with a water bottle which is refilled daily and enables them to access water throughout the day.
All meals are prepared on site by our skilled catering team our menus are designed to provide a healthy balance. Our menus take into account the various needs of our children and include vegetarian options. Children can only switch from cooked meals to sandwiches at the beginning of every half term, please contact the office in advance if you wish to change for the next half term.
As part of our commitment to a healthy lifestyle children are provided with a fresh salad bar and they are encourage to choose a selection of fresh vegetables and fruit to accompany their meal.
All school dinner monies should be sent in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with your child's name and class and the amount contained within the envelope.
Payments can also be made at the school office between 8:30am and 4:00pm.
Free School Meals
If you or your partner receives income support (IS), Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA), or benefit support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 your child may be entitled to free school meals. Your child may also be entitled to free school meals if you are receipt of Child Tax Credit (but not entitled to working tax credit) and have an income not exceeding £16,190. Please contact the academy office for help, advice and an application form.
Packed lunches are welcome in our academy, please send lunches in a named, sealed, non-breakable container. Please ensure that your child is eating a balanced diet this could include sandwiches, a piece of fruit and a drink. We ask that children only bring one treat item per day (small cake, biscuit or crisps.) Please do not send chocolate, fizzy pop, cans or glass bottles.
