School meals at King Solomon Academy 

All pupils at KSA are served lunch prepared by Accent Catering. We do not have a packed lunch option and pupils may not bring any of their own food to school.

If your child has allergies, then you will have shared this information with us when they enrolled. Please keep us up to date with any changes about allergies, so we can keep the kitchen informed.

We are a nut free school and do not serve meals with any nuts in. All meat and ingredients served by Accent at King Solomon Academy are Halal.

Pupils in Nursery enjoy their lunch in the Nursery classroom, supported by the Nursery staff.

Pupils from Reception to Year 4 eat in the Main Hall at YYS with their own year group. They have a choice of two hot meals every day.

At the Older Years Site, pupils from Year 5 to 11 dine in the family service model, which means they sit on tables of six, serving each other, and enjoying their meal as a family would at home.

At Sixth Form, students remain onsite for lunch, and can choose from a range of hot and cold options.

The charges per pupil per day are outlined below, and include fruit at break time, and a main meal and dessert at lunch.

The menus are on a three-week cycle, and are shared on this page. There is a vegetarian option – please ensure you have shared whether your child is vegetarian, so we can provide this for them each day.

The menus are reviewed once a full term, and we hold a tasting event for parents once a year at each site. Please do send any feedback, thoughts and questions about school meals to parents@kingsolomonacademy.org.

Catering Coffee Morning - Wednesday 8th December

Thank you to all the parents that came to OYS on Wednesday for our Accent Catering Coffee Morning. We had over 30 parents join us (in person!) and tasted the chicken curry with rice, traditional Italian lasagne, vegetarian lasagne, falafel and pitta bread and salsa, and margherita pizza followed by shortbread biscuits and lemon drizzle cake. The feedback was so useful and lots of parents were very happy with the choices on offer. It was an incredible opportunity to share some of the dishes with parents of younger and older years pupils. Parents were very grateful and gave lots of positive feedback.

  • “The best curry I’ve ever eaten”
  • “The lasagne is delicious”
  • “The vegetarian lasagne is very good”
  • “I don’t know why they complain, it’s all delicious! Now I know!”

We have made a decision to take off the falafel and Quorn burgers for the January menu based on parental feedback. The Quorn burgers were not on the original menu but due to Brexit there have been many issues with the delivery of food items. This has meant that sometimes the menus have had to change last minute. We will endeavour to inform you if this is ever the case long term.

A huge thank you to Catherine, our OYS chef, for putting this on for our parents and to Gloria, our YYS chef and Accent for their ongoing hard work to provide such nutritious and delicious meals for our pupils despite all the barriers this term has given us!

Feedback

We run termly virtual coffee mornings where parents are welcome to give feedback to Ian Harman, the Accent Catering Manager - all parents are welcome!
