At The Peak Academy, we understand just how important it is for young people to have a healthy and balanced diet. That is why our school lunch menu is filled with a variety of nutritious, high-quality meals, and we encourage parents to provide healthy options in their child's lunchbox.
Mid morning fruit is provided for all children. At morning break time, we have a policy that children eat only fruit.
Children may bring in a packed lunch. The Peak Academy supports the provision of a healthy lunch box, encouraging parents to include healthy options. A leaflet produced by Gloucester Health Promotion suggesting healthy ideas is available in school.
A cooked lunch can be provided at the school if required. Your child might be able to get free school meals if you receive any of the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The Guaranteed Element of Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (Provided you’re not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit Run-on (Paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for working tax credit)
- Universal Credit
Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
