Meals at Thurcroft Junior Academy

We know that well nourished children have greater concentration. 

Tasty, nutritionally balanced meals are prepared in our school kitchen every day, and we encourage all children to eat a cooked meal at lunchtime.

School dinners are cooked on the premises and are served in a cafeteria system.  At the present time meals are £2.05 per day, £10.25per week. 


Your child may choose to bring a packed lunch but please do not send fizzy pop or hot liquids in flasks. Please make sure lunch boxes are clearly marked with your child’s name and class, and do not forget to include cutlery if your packed lunch includes pasta, yoghurt, fruit salad etc.

At some time your child may want to change from school meals to sandwiches or vice versa.  No notice is needed for this change as the school operates a banding system which means the pupil choose their choice of dinner at 8.50am when the register is completed. Parents are given a copy of the term’s menu so that they are aware of exactly what their child is having for lunch each day. Chilled choice is often available as a third option - this is a sandwich , cold pudding and fruit or vegetable bag. However, cooked meals offer best value for parents, so please inform school if you want to make sure your child always chooses from the hot lunch selection.


In addition to food served from the menu, pupils can choose extra items from the self-service salad bar.
