Your child will only be allowed to leave the school site during the lunch hour if you have completed the reply slip and your child has returned it to the academy. By completing this reply slip, you have accepted responsibility for your child's safety and wellbeing whilst they are off the premises.

lower school lunch is 11:50am-12:35pm

upper school lunch is 12:35pm-13:20pm

Students are not permitted to go to the shops during the lunch hour and should return to the academy five minutes before the end of their lunch break (12:30pm for Years 7-9 and 13:15pm for Years 10-11)

All students who have parental permission to go home for their lunch will be issued with a lunch time pass.

Manor Community Academy's Dining Hall is very popular, with children able to select from a wide range of hot and cold foods. Importantly, all of the meals are quality controlled and meet nutritional and healthy food standards. The Academy uses a swipe card system and cards are credited by placing cash in a special machine.

Parents are able to monitor how much money is being spent each day and what their children are consuming.

Parents and carers who wish to make enquiries about eligibility for free meals can do so by completing a form which is available on request, from the Academy Office.
