Allergy Awareness

Please note, it is extremely important that you inform your child’s academy and Chartwells of any food allergies or intolerances that your child has. We welcome all children with allergies/intolerances and providing we deem it safe to do so, an appropriate meal can be provided daily in line with our internal policies and procedures. This food is prepared in a sanitised area of the academy’s kitchen.

Free School Meals

Every child in Reception, Year One and Year Two classes will receive a school meal irrespective of family circumstances. You can still be eligible for a 'Pupil Premium Grant' because of your financial circumstances and receive a qualifying benefit.
