The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible – schools remain open only for children who need to attend.


Eating a healthy and balanced lunch is vital to a child’s learning.

Children can either bring a packed lunch or have a school dinner. We encourage all meals to be healthy and nutritious.

Healthy Eating

At Co-op Academy Friarswood, we believe that healthy eating is fundamental. Throughout their learning the children complete many learning activities about healthy eating and keeping their bodies active and healthy.

As part of our healthy eating programme a carton of milk and piece of fruit is provided free of charge for each child in Nursery and Reception. Water is also available throughout the day.

We’ve been awarded the Food For Life Gold Award.

Dinner prices

£2.20 per day. To assist the school, we ask that this is paid weekly (£11.00) and via Parentpay.

Usernames and passwords are sent to parents from the office.  If you need help with this or lose your details, please contact the office.
