Many studies have shown that hunger affects concentration, and that well-nourished children fare better at school. The government now funds school lunches for all infant aged children. At Whipperley Academy we expect all children to take advantage of their entitlement to a free school meal. We have a kitchen on site and all our meals are prepared by our fantastic kitchen staff who are also able to cater for most allergies.
Many parents mistakenly imagine that a packed lunch is the healthiest option. In fact, it is far easier to get the necessary nutrients into a cooked meal. Only 1% of packed lunches meet the nutritional standards that currently apply to school food.
