We are proud to be recognised as a Healthy School.
Fairfield Academy is committed to providing quality wrap-around care to help parents organize their lives around their children’s schooling.
Our breakfast club opens at 7:45am. Its purpose is to help parents who have various early morning commitments. It is sited in our Nurture room. Pupils attending the breakfast club get a proper breakfast to prepare them for the start of the school day. After breakfast they engage with a range of games and activities to occupy them constructively before school starts. There is a small charge for each breakfast club session booked.
School meals are cooked on site by a reputable company. The menu provides a nutritionally balanced meal with vegetarian and salad options. Meals include a main course and a dessert; fruit is always an option. Meals are paid for in advance and costs are periodically given in newsletters. If preferred, your child is welcome to bring a packed lunch from home. However, please do not include in packed lunches nuts, or products made with nuts. The school sometimes has pupils with severe nut allergies and the consequences can be dangerous, even fatal, if such food is inadvertently shared with a child who has a nut allergy.
