School Lunches

Our School Lunches are provided by ISS Education’s “Feeding Hungry Minds”.

School meals cost £2.53 per day and are currently paid for via MCAS.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for Universal Free School Meals. However, from Year 3, lunches are to be paid for via MCAS. We kindly ask that accounts are kept in credit.

If you receive certain benefits your child may be eligible to receive Free School Meals. Please contact the school office if you think you might be eligible.

ISS create their menus based on the principles of the Soil Association’s Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark. The Food for Life Catering Mark criteria has been developed to reflect best practice in healthy and sustainable school food.

Packed Lunches

An Overview of our Lunchbox Policy:

  • The school will provide facilities for pupils bringing in packed lunches and ensure that free, fresh drinking water is readily available at all times.
    Please note; water is the only acceptable drink.
  • The school will work with the pupils to provide attractive and appropriate dining room arrangements
  • The school will work with parents to ensure that packed lunches abide by the standards listed below.
  • Lunch box trolleys are kept in a cool area although pupils could use insulated lunch bags with freezer blocks in warmer months.
  • Children must only eat their own food and not other children’s.
  • Nut or nut products are not permitted as we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL.
  • All uneaten food and waste will be kept in the lunchbox and returned home with the child so that parents are able to monitor their child’s food consumption.
  • Glass bottles and tins are not permitted due to safety issues that could arise.
  • Your child’s lunchbox should be clearly labelled with their name.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
