Here at Aspire Academies Trust we always encourage the children to be aware of how important our eating habits are to helping 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. “Seconds” are available to a cleared plate.
 
We listen to all our customers be it younger children, budding teens 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 2 am 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. Many of our cooks have children at the Academies where they work so get first hand feedback on how we are doing. We are fully compliant with the Governments School Food Standards and all our kitchens are 5 star rated.

Ordering System

From January 2017 meal choices will be made on the day at registration, we would be grateful if parents could discuss the menu options with their child(ren) each morning so that they come to school knowing which meal they would like to have. 


Payment in Advance

As School Gateway shows an up-to-date dinner balance, we will no longer be sending termly invoices. Payment for school dinners should be made in advance via your School Gateway account, your balance for school meals should be kept above £10.00. Reminders will be sent when your balance falls below this amount.


Parent Lunches

Would you like to try one of our lunches for yourself? Parent Lunch days are an opportunity for you to come and eat with your child to sample the food we offer. It is also an opportunity for children currently having packed lunches to try a hot lunch with a parent present. Parent lunches are organised into Year group sessions on a termly rota, you can view upcoming dates in our School Diary
