School Meals



Please do not pack nut products into your child's packed lunch.




Hot meals are provided by Ideal, an independent, external catering company specialising in primary school meals.

Meals are prepared and served from our high quality school kitchen at White's Wood Academy and are in line with the Government’s Guidelines for School Meals.

Children are able to choose from 5 menu options each day, and there are regular themed meals.

Universal Infant Free School Meals


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals.  We will automatically register children for a meal. However, parents should still register with the Online ordering service and choose their child's preferred menu option.  Menu Option 1 meals will automatically be provided for children if an alternative meal is not ordered.


Free School Meals


Please do not forget to register with the school if you believe you are entitled to Free School Meal entitlement. This is different to the Universal Infant Free School Meal programme. Please contact the school office for further information and guidance.
