We are moving!

We are counting down to the move from temporary accommodation within Ark Priory Primary Academy to our own new building on the Vale:  just a few weeks left to go!  We move in the week beginning 19th February 2018 and the school will be closed whilst we move.


Our chef (Ms Louise Tomkins) has devised some delicious menus for the Winter term. Please see below:

Ark Byron Menu A, B and C Winter Term

Ark Byron Primary Academy is committed to healthy eating and all pupils have a hot school lunch which is prepared onsite every day by our in-house chefs.

All meals are low in sugar, fat and salt and are rotated on a three weekly basis. A halal option and vegetarian choice is always provided and we can usually cater for special dietary needs. Packed lunches are only allowed if medical reasons (accompanied by a doctor's recommendation) mean that a hot school meal is not suitable.   Choices of food are not offered because we believe that children should be encouraged to sample new foods and develop their tastes.

Family dining is an important part of our day when we all sit down together and enjoy a healthy and tasty lunch. This is intended as a dining experience where children will learn the value of healthy and tasty meals amongst their peers and will encourage them to practise their table manners and polite conversation. Every week we have a "top table" lunch when children (who have been nominated by the adults on their lunch table) join Mrs Kaplan on a special table for lunch.  The children receive a written invitation for this and write their "RSVP."

NB We are a nut free school.
