School Meals

Hot Dinners

Leighton Academy has signed up to the School Food Plan. All school meals offered to the children meet the requirements of the new food standards regulations.

All reception, year 1 and year 2 children are eligible for a free school meal. If your child requires a hot school meal, please send the money in an envelope (KS2 children only) marked with his/her name and class. School dinners are currently £2.20 per day, payable on a Monday, weekly or half termly (cheques payable to Leighton Academy). You can also pay for school meals on our online system (School Gateway). Please click here.

Menus are available from the school office. If you believe you may be entitled to free school meals, please contact the office.

Packed Lunches

Please label your child’s lunchbox clearly in a lunchbox that they can easily open and close. Please try and provide a healthy and balanced lunch that they will enjoy. Please do not be tempted to overfill your child’s lunchbox as this can be daunting for a child. For ideas for healthy lunches check out this website:


Children have access to water at all times. Please provide your child with a labelled, sports cap water bottle.
