The Arbours Primary Academy

We have over 390 children and we are continually improving and developing what we offer our pupils in our drive to become one of the best primaries in the area.

Food

Breakfast Club

Our school has joined the government's National School Breakfast Programme, which is being delivered by the charity Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

We are happy to offer a free healthy breakfast to all our children and we would welcome your child to join us for a great start to the day.

Our Breakfast Club starts at 8:15 and is held in the school hall. Breakfast Club will serve until 8:45. We offer a range of nutritious cereals, bagels and drinks.

Lunches

Lunches are provided by Chartwells and are well balanced, nutritious and delicious.

School lunches are booked through ParentPay.  You will need a login from  Mrs Haynes, Office Administrator to access this service. Lunches need to be ordered by midnight on Tuesday for the following week.

Alternatively, your child can bring a packed lunch to school. please ensure that this is in line with our Healthy Eating Policy and not contain sweets or fizzy drinks.

Sometimes children will refuse to eat the dinner that has been ordered for them. We will, of course, encourage your child to eat their dinner (or packed lunch) but we cannot force them.  We will talk to your child's teacher so they can let you know about their refusal. Sometimes we may call you to let you know as well, if we feel it is becoming a regular problem.
