School Meals

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.

Please note that all our meat is halal.

Every child is offered a piece of fruit everyday at school.

Free School Meals Vouchers

If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, from Monday 25th January 2021, we will be issuing a £30 voucher fortnightly, instead of a weekly food parcel. These vouchers will be provided by HUGGG, and sent via SMS, so please ensure you have updated the school with your most recent mobile number. If you have any issues accessing your voucher or would like any more information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to talk to Cheryl, who will be more than happy to help.

A new provider for the payment of school meals - coming soon!


As part of their continuous effort to improve online payment methods LBC Catering Services reviewed its provider, and are pleased to inform you that Tucasi (https://www.scopay.com) will be the new provider.

Eat them to defeat them

Schools have a critical role to play in getting children eating vegetables – through learning, play and school food.  Eat them to defeat them school’s programme has been designed by top educators, public health professionals, school caterers and their creative team, in line with the curriculum and government healthy-eating guidelines.  This year over 1 million children in 3,800 primary and special schools are taking part.


The evil vegetables are back, but children haven’t been sat idly – no, this is the moment they’ve been waiting for.  Prepare for battle with  games, downloads and more – and don’t forget to share your veg victories on social media.  Please click on the link below
