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 chef and her team.
All meals are low in sugar, fat and salt and are rotated on a three weekly basis. 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.
We have a team who support the teaching team at lunchtimes. Promoting good table manners is important to our lunchtimes.
NB We are a nut free school.
Our chef (Miss Bridget Walker) has devised some delicious menus. Please see below menus for Summer term 1.
