Witham St Hughs Academy provides hot meals using an outside catering company. Meals are ordered and paid for directly with the catering company and are ordered over 4 week periods. Parents are notified by the catering company and by the school when ordering opens and closes for booking hot meals. All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible to receive free school meals. Further information regarding hot meals can be obtained from the main office. Alternatively, parents and carers can provide children with a packed lunch. Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are provided with a piece of fruit during the school day as part of the ‘Healthy Schools’ Scheme. To support our Healthy Eating scheme, parents are asked to ensure children have healthy foods in their lunch box. Fruit and healthy snacks can be purchased each morning as break-time snacks from the tuck shop.
