All foundation and Key Stage 1 children are entitled to a free hot two course meal paid for by the government.
All meals are freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchens at Bluecoat Beechdale Academy, meals are healthy and include plenty of fruit and vegetables.
We do offer vegetarian options and special menus for children with allergies.
Eating a meal together with friends is a social event and is an enjoyable experience for children. It helps them learn the correct use of cutlery for cutting and slicing food and also gives them the responsibility of tidying away plates afterwards.
If you would like to start your child on our tasty dinners please contact us and we can arrange this for you immediately.
We also have fruit and milk available at the ‘Munch and Mingle’ area for children in foundation and Key Stage 1. Fresh drinking water is available for all children, throughout the day.
Please click the link above to see the menu for September 2020. On returning to school in September due to Covid-19 only children in Nursery & Reception will be served a hot meal. All other year groups will be served a school sandwich meal if they are normally a school dinner.
