At Harris Academy Chobham we work with Chartwells to provide enjoyable, nutritious, and varied school meals for our students.
The menu is updated termly, works on a three-week rotation, and includes a variety of different meals daily. Each day children can choose from a main and alternative option as well as jacket potato, pasta in tomato sauce and a sandwich. Fruit is available for dessert daily as well as a yogurt and cake options.
The current menu can be found below.
Allergies and Dietary requirements
All meals are Halal and we do not serve pork in the Primary academy. There is always a vegetarian option available and dietary requirements, such as a vegan menu, can be provided. Nuts are not included on the menu and all precautions are taken to reduce nut products however we cannot guarantee the Academy is nut free.
When preparing over 2000 meals in the Academy daily it is so important that allergies are identified correctly, and special menus are produced to ensure the safety of our students. Depending on the child’s allergy or dietary requirement there maybe an Allergy Aware menu allocated to the child or a bespoke menu. These will be shared with parents to ensure they are appropriate for the child.
If your child has an allergy, please complete the relevant form below and submit it to the school office along with medical evidence confirming your child’s allergy. This can include an Allergy Action plan, doctors’ letter etc. We will then work with Chartwells to produce a suitable menu. In the meantime your child may only receive an allergy assured school meal to ensure their safety.
If your child will be attending wraparound please also let the wraparound team know abnout any allergy or dietary requirement.
Dietary request form can be found here:
Covid-19 Meal service
Currently, all meals will be portioned and served to the children in reusable, biodegradable 'Bento style' lunch boxes. The meals will be served either in their class or the dinner hall depending on their year group. Bubbles will remain in place and social distancing will be practised whenever more than one class are in the dinner hall to reduce Coronavirus risk.
To support this style of lunch service, children will order their meals a week in advance and their class teachers will collect their preferences each Friday for the following week. It can help if parents go through the menu at home to support their child making a choice that is best for them.
