Parents on Universal Credit are able to claim free school meals via the West Northamptonshire Council website. The children in school will not be made aware that some meals are provided free.
Our team of talented midday supervisors ensure that your child has a healthy meal, making lunchtime one of the many highlights of Falconer's Hill Academy.
Lunch is served in the hall from 12:10. Children can bring in their own packed lunches or you can order lunch from Caterlink via MCAS. If your child brings in a packed lunch please make sure it is balanced and nut free. We are a NUT FREE school due to staff and children having allergies, please do not allow your child to bring in food containing nuts including Nutella sandwiches.
We have a cashless system in place which enables parents to order lunches and pay through Parent Pay. Children eat in the main hall and are supported by lunchtime supervisors.
All school, lunches need to be booked by midnight on TUESDAYS for the following week. You are able to book for multiple weeks at a time. There are different options available for your child to choose. Please ensure you go through the menu with your child and book meals that they will enjoy. Also, you will need to pay for the meals at the time of booking. If you are entitled to Free School Meals, you will need to book the same way but will not be charged.
Children are able to bring snacks from home into school as long as they are healthy such as fruit, crudites and low sugar/fat/salt cereal bars are encouraged. We do not allow chocolate bars, crisp or fizzy drinks as a snack.

Keeping hydrated is important to improve physical, cognitive and emotional well-being. We encourage and recommend that children bring in their own named water bottle. For good hygiene we recommend that these be taken home and washed daily. Please do not send your child in with squash.
