We are extremely proud to be able to offer home cooked meals from our Kitchen. Cranfield Church of England Academy run their own kitchen, under the keen eye of Mrs Jackie Batham, our Kitchen Manager. Our kitchen's aim is to provide meals that are child friendly, affordable and of a high nutritional standard. Dishes are freshly prepared daily using quality ingredients. A termly menu is issued three times a year.
Lunch money can be paid, weekly, or half-termly in advance in a named envelope/container (cash or cheque payable to “Cranfield Church of England Academy”) and placed in the Office Post Box. Alternatively and often more conveniently, parents can also pay online or through the 'ParentMail' app using PlusPay.
EYFS & Key Stage One Lunches - Free to all children.
Key Stage Two Academy Lunches; £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week.
If you feel your Key Stage Two child may be entitled to Free School Meals, we encourage you to contact our Office, where we will be able to support you with this.
Hot School Dinners
If your child has any allergies or intolerance to any foods or if they have any other dietary need, please contact us to discuss how we may help.
If your child would like to order a school packed lunch, they are able to do so. Similarly, you are able to provide a healthy packed lunch from home should you wish. Please would you ensure that no fizzy drinks or sweets are sent and that your child has a spoon / cup if these are needed. Children are allowed sugar-free squash.
