It is important to us at Nightingale Community academy that students are well fed so that they can concentrate on their learning. Furthermore, we view meal times as a great opportunity to develop social skills. Therefore, all meals are freely available to all students.
Meal times are:
Healthy breakfast – 8.30am – 9am
Break/tuck – 10.10-10:30am
Lunch (Primary)- 12.00pm – 12:45
Lunch (Secondary): 13:00 – 13:45
Afternoon break (for Primary only): 13:45 -13:55
All meals are prepared on site by our chef who is often helped by students. Meat and vegetables from the farm are used and we place a strong emphasis on students understanding where their food comes from and the importance of healthy eating.
Please see menus below
We are pleased to work with the charity Chefs in Schools and are especially grateful to them for the support given to NCA during the Covid pandemic and since then. The dining hall was redecorated in 2022 over the summer holidays by London artist The Fandangoe Kid and is a bright, welcoming space where students can enjoy their meals.
