A hot lunch is available every day here at Charville Academy. We use ingredients sourced from responsible local suppliers and we prepare all our food on site. We don’t use processed ready meals or bring food in from other kitchens.
Children who attend nursery all day (30 hours) may buy a school lunch for £2.30.
Universal Infant Free School Meals will be offered to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes.
If you are eligible for Free School Meals, based on a household income of less than £16,190 then please click here for more information. Registration for Free School Meals supports the school with additional income which is used to benefit these pupils.
In 2023-2024, additional, one-off, funding has been provided by the Mayor of London so that no child in years 3,4,5 or 6 needs to pay for their lunch. We would still encourage you to apply for Free School Meals if you are eligible, as this unlocks other resources for the school and the mayoral funding is only for one year.
We have a meat, vegetarian and jacket potato/bread roll option available daily. We have expanded our services to be able to provide Halal meals too (please refer to this term's menu). All our meals are served alongside a salad bar and desserts.
We use the online system, Parent Pay, to collect money in school. Any chargeable school meals need to be paid for in advance. All parents will get a letter requiring them to register for Parent Pay during the admission process.
We will notify parents when accounts are in arrears by text message and letter asking for payment. This is followed up with a phone call.
If you have any questions, please contact the finance team.
