Healthy Eating

At The Stephen Longfellow Academy, we are very keen to offer our pupils healthy food options in the morning and at lunchtime.

In the morning, pupils can choose from a range of breakfast options including:

  • Fruit

  • Wholemeal toast

  • Fruit juices

At lunchtime, there are several options available including:

  • Soups

  • Salads

  • Paninis

  • Sandwiches

Our pupils are encouraged to try something new every day and to think carefully about the choices they are making about food,

Our team are more than happy to cater for the dietary requirements of individual pupils. Parents should contact the child’s Head of Year if they require this.

Parents may also contact the academy if they want to see a summary of what their child is eating at school. Please contact Mr Needham if you are interested in this.

Free School Meals

Did you know – if you’re on benefits, your child may be entitled to free school meals!

We are more than happy to support you in filling out a claim form, which you can get by calling the Leeds Revenues and Benefits Service on 0113 222 4404.

At The Stephen Longfellow Academy, we will not allow money to stop your son or daughter being happy and achieving. If you are at all concerned about finances, please contact your child’s Head of Year.

If you receive the following benefits, your child will be allowed free school meals:

  • Income Support

  • Income Based Job Seeker’s allowance

  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16190, provided you are not receiving Working Tax Credit

  • The ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit

  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Please be aware, families receiving Working Tax Credit, no matter what their income is, do NOT qualify for free school meals.
