Springwell Leeds Academy

School Meals


Breakfast is provided free of charge for all students every morning. There is usually a choice of cereals and toast available.


Meals are served in the dining areas. The meals offer a range of opportunities for students to try a variety of foods. The meals are nutritionally balanced and provide a range of food both traditional and more adventurous.

Staff eat in the dining room with their tutor group or key stage. Lunch time is a period when staff can engage students in polite conversation and promote good manners. The provision of a lunch encourages students to try new foods in a calm supportive environment.

Students are given a choice of different meals, such as a traditional dinner, a jacket potato with a range of fillings,  salads or a vegetarian option. A variety of traditional desserts and fruit or yoghurt are available on a daily basis.

We are delighted to inform you that parents / carers are no longer required to pay for school meals. This is part of the Springwell Leeds policy to ensure that every child has a free meal as part of their school day. This policy will be in place until further notice.

Parents can opt for their child to bring a packed lunch from home. Packed lunches are eaten in the dining room.

Springwell Leeds Academy promotes healthy eating and so packed lunches should not contain sweets; chocolate, fizzy or energy drinks and pupils with these products in their lunch box will be encouraged to save them for home.
