School Lunches

Healthy Living

The governors and staff are committed to encouraging the children to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables during their school week in order to support parents ensure a better diet for their children.

School Meals

Similarly, the canteen staff is also committed to providing a balanced menu and follows the ‘Fresh Start’ scheme. This is a national initiative that guarantees a good quality balanced meal using freshly prepared ingredients sourced locally wherever possible.

Our meals are provided by Devon Norse and are freshly made each day in the kitchen at St. Andrew's Primary Academy. Information on the allergen content of the Devon Norse menu is available on their website.
