The canteen at Everest Community Academy is committed to providing nutritious school meals. We take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, making lunch time tasty, enjoyable and great value for money.
School meals are provided on a cafeteria basis with a free breakfast available to every student. Students are encouraged to sit in the dining hall during lunch time and especially during inclement weather. There are a number of picnic benches for students to use if the weather is fine and we encourage students to go outside for some fresh air before returning to the classroom.
Parents/carers on one of the following are entitled to claim free school meals:
- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit, and have an annual income, as assessed by the Inland Revenue, that does not exceed £14,155. Parents who receive Working Tax Credit in addition to Child Tax Credit do not qualify for free school meals.
- Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
