School Meals


Breakfast is currently provided free of charge for all students every morning. There is usually a choice of cereal and toasted bagels available.


Lunches are currently provided free of charge to all our pupils. This is part of our 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.

Please click here for the free school meals application form. 

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. Contact site for menu information.

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.
