School Lunches

We are very proud of high quality of school dinners we provide. 

Children can choose from either;

  • A hot meal (Halal option available)
  • A vegetarian hot meal
  • A jacket potato filled with either beans, cheese or tuna

 School meals cost £2.35 a day which is payable in advance or on the day, using My Child At School. 

All children in KS1 receive a free school meal as a result of the Universal Free School Meals initiative. However if you meet any of the following criteria you must STILL apply to get the additional Pupil Premium funding that schools receive for those eligible. 

Your child is eligible for Free School Meals if;

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit 
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit: if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year.

Packed Lunches

Henbury Court Primary Academy has a healthy eating policy.  We ask that children who bring packed lunches should aim to include all food groups in their lunchbox as school meals do. We are grateful for your support in helping your child to be healthy, active and happy!

Allergies, Intolerance and Texture Modified Diet

Tila believes in treating all pupils equally whatever their diet, catering for all pupils with allergies, intolerances and special dietary requirements, so they can to enjoy suitable school meals with their friends.

If a child has an allergy or intolerance, or requires a texture modified diet, the parent/guardian is able to request an 'Allergies, Intolerance and Texture Modified Diet Referral Form' from their school front office. This form must be supported by appropriate medical referral from a regulated healthcare professional and returned to the Tila Central Catering Team, via the school front office.

For safety, a pupil will not be provided with a school meal until the parent/guardian and the school kitchen have received the relevant information from the Tila Central Catering Team. This can take up to 4 weeks for creating bespoke menus.

Please note: We do not require a form for religious/cultural preferences, these can be catered for by the school; please speak to the school front office.

Our Allergies and Intolerances process does not cater for likes and dislikes.
