Ark Priory Primary Academy is committed to healthy eating and we expect all pupils to eat a hot school lunch which is prepared on site everyday by our in-house chef and catering team. All meals are low in sugar, fat and salt and are rotated on a three weekly basis. All meat and fish are halal.  A vegetarian choice is always provided and we can usually cater to special dietary needs. Packed lunches are only allowed for medical reasons (accompanied by a doctor's recommendation).

Family dining is an important part of our day when we all sit down together, serve our friends and helpers and enjoy a healthy and tasty lunch. This is intended as a civilised dining experience where children will learn the value of healthy and tasty meals amongst fellow scholars and will encouragethem to practise their table manners and polite conversation.

Food and Nutrition Standards

We are continuously striving to provide the best lunches we can for the children at Ark Priory Primary Academy and take our advice from The Independent School Food Plan who are the body recommended by the government to advise schools on heathy eating. Do visit their website for more information. Alternatively, the guidelines we follow can be downloaded here. A hard copy of this document can be obtained from the Kitchen Manager.
