School meals are freshly prepared on site and there is a range of hot meals (including vegetarian options), sandwiches and snacks available. The set meal costs £2.40 per day and includes main meal, drink and snack. Students can bring in their own packed lunch if they wish.
The Academy is open from 7.00am each day and all MEA students have the option to have a free breakfast every day from 8:00am. Toast, cereal and fruit are available, plus a hot drink.
How Will I Pay?
You can pay for your child’s school dinner through ParentPay.
MEA is surrounded by a number of shops and the Civic Centre and we are concerned that students are spending their lunch money on junk food on their way to school rather than getting a proper meal. At MEA we want our students to grow into successful young people and it is therefore vital that we support them to be fit and healthy. Please help us with this by monitoring where your child’s lunch money is spent.
