School Meals

School meals are prepared on site by the Academy’s catering team. We operate a cashless catering system. Therefore no cash can be accepted at the till points in any of the catering areas. Students can top up their accounts at the cashless systems located around the academy and use to buy food before school, during morning break and at lunchtime.

Students that qualify for free school meals can also use the new system. Their accounts will automatically be credited with the amount allocated for free school meals, which the students can then spend in the normal way. The amount will be paid into the account on a daily basis and can be spent at lunchtime. These students can also “top-up” their balances if required to enable them to purchase a snack during morning break.

How are free school meals paid?

If you claim is successful, we will be notified that you are entitled to 'free school meals' and your cashless account will automatically be updated with funds. We will ensure that 'free school meal' information is treated with the strictest confience and handled sensitively.

Application's Support

Childwall Sports and Science Academy is happy to support parents in their application for free school meals for their child/children. If you would like assistance or would like to discuss this further then please email contactus@childwallssa.org

As well as children receiving their entitlement of a free school meal, each school day, it also attracts much needed additional funding for our school.

We would ask all parents to make an application for free school meals (FSM), if they are entitled, even if they do not intend taking advantage of it.
