The Courtyard School provides the students with a variety of options during lunchtime.
Students can bring in either a hot or cold meal and prepare it in the purpose built kitchen facilities. They can then eat this in the common area, while socialising with their peers. This time is supervised closely to ensure that a friendly and calm atmosphere is maintained.
Pupils can also eat lunch in the Secondary building with the mainstream students. A healthy cooked meal is prepared each day. Water is provided and students can enjoy their meal whilst chatting to friends and Secondary staff.
We adhere to the government’s National Healthy Schools programme and as such we encourage a balanced diet. Please see our guidelines for further clarity on what is/isn’t allowed to be consumed.
Parents can apply for free schools meals using the free school meals form. Details about eligibility criteria can be found on the form.
