Catering, Ofsted and Useful Links

A typical lunchtime food offering

This link provides details of the current lunchtime menu service which you can see runs on a three weekly menu cycle.

Our menu has been created after extensive research into student preferences; it is also nutritious and compliant with all government guidelines.

The menu aims to offer more of what students want, including good food that can be eaten on the go as well as themed days to coincide with key dates such as Pancake Day, Burns Night, Diwali, etc.

The catering service includes an offering for breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch.

A typical grab 'n' go food and drink offering

The current tariff pricing is available in this link and demonstrates the full range of food and drink which is available.

The academy uses a cashless catering system for the food and drink purchases.

Here is a link to the Eatwell Guide (from Public Health England) – this provides a useful overview of what food groups make up a balanced and healthy diet.

If your child has a special diet and/or certain food intolerances, then we have a special diet procedure which contains a form for the parent/carer to complete and return – link here.

Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance. Find out if your child is entitled to free school meals by accessing this link. The meal value is £2.30.

You can contact the on-site Catering Manager at Harris Academy Purley via email:

Parent View

Parent View is the Ofsted online questionnaire survey tool that enables parents/carers or in fact anyone with an email address to comment on a school against a set list of questions. Therefore it can be completed at any time during an academic year by people who do not have a child at the Academy as well as those who do. However it is not possible for the responses to be validated as completed by parents/carers of students at the Academy. The Academy therefore also uses hard copies of the same survey questions during Parent Evenings throughout the year for each year group in order to verify that the survey responses are completed by a parent/carer with a child/children in a particular year group at the Academy and discuss anything raised with parents/carers directly and also pass feedback to staff and Governors. https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/parent-view-results/survey/result/23154/current
