At Temple Learning Academy, all our school meals are prepared on site, fresh, by our experienced catering team.
Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are prepared daily and children are offered a choice of main courses and desserts. Salads and fruit are always available. Our catering team provide food which meets national Food Standards criteria. See below for our latest menu choices.
School meals cost £2.30 per day. This is FREE to every pupil in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Those entitled to Free School Meals (see below for details) will also receive these from the school kitchens.
Your child will receive a free school meal as part of the universal free school meal offer. If you are in receipt of benefits your child may also be eligible for a Pupil Premium Grant. If you feel you may be entitled to this please speak to school as soon as possible as this could provide us with approximately £1300 per pupil per year which could better support your child with their learning,
We use a CASHLESS CATERING SYSTEM. Pupils wishing to purchase a school meal must doing so via our PARENT PAY portal by loading money on to their individual accounts. Please see the admin team if you need support to set this up. Parents of pupils in Rec, Year 1 and Year 2 must make their menu choices via the Parent Pay portal. Parents of children in Year 3 onwards can see what their child has chosen on the portal. If you need support with this please contact the admin team.
If you would like your child to have a packed lunch from Year 3 onwards please refer to our guidelines below. Please provide your child a healthy lunch and with water as a drink.
