At Chantry Community Academy, we use a company called TCS for our meals. They are an outside contractor and as such, are not employed by the school.

The cost of a meal is £2.35 which needs to be booked and paid for in advance online via ParentPay. 

If you have any issues or queries with regards to meals or payment, then please write a note to TCS via the school.

All children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 are entitled to a free lunch. These are universal free school meals.

Please contact TCS if you wish to discuss food allergies


Packed Lunches

Children are more than welcome to bring their own packed lunch. We do encourage children to bring healthy options and if we are concerned about the content of a packed lunch, we will notify the parent. We do not allow glass bottles, fizzy drinks or sweets in lunchboxes.

Currently in school, we have a number of children who require an Epipen due to a nut allergy or other food based allergy. Staff in school are highly vigilant with regards to the food around the school. However, it is imperative that all packed lunches do not contain any nut based food products. This will be the same for all packed lunches taken on school trips.


Please help and support us in keeping our children safe and healthy.
