We are very proud of our National Healthy School status. As part of this standard we encourage all children to eat healthily
Our school meals are provided by Caterlink and are cooked on site at Stretton C of E Academy, Coventry. An emphasis is placed on healthy food choices and their award winning menus and the quality of the ingredients they use are all planned to comply with the Government’s Nutrient and Food Based Standards . The school operates a red and green band system which enables all children to receive the meal of their choice each day.
Parent are able to use Parentpay, our online system to pay for school meals.
Children may also bring in their own packed lunch from home. For lots of useful ideas and advice on packing a healthy lunchbox for your child, please have a look at the Public Health Agency leaflet, 'Are you packing a healthy lunch?'available to download here.

The school operates a healthy snack policy at breaktime. Children in Key Stage One are given a piece of fruit each day as part of our involvement in the National Fruit Scheme. All children in the school are entitled to buy milk to drink at breaktime. Please contact Cool Milk at school at PO Box 994 Lincoln, LN5GS or log on their website to for further information.
Children are encouraged to drink water regularly through the day. There is a water machine available throughout the day and children should bring their own water bottles. This may be kept on their desk and filled up at breaktime and lunchtime.
