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 pay on our online system (Arbor). School meals are priced at £2.25 per day.

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:

Here is another helpful website for healthy lunch boxes.


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

Please find below some information provided by our food supplier, Chartwells and the menu for the Spring Term 2018.
