West Walsall E-ACT Academy operates its own highly successful in-house meals service through Aspens catering company, we provide students with a balanced and nutritional meal throughout the day this provision meets government guidelines. It is a provision that is popular amongst students, underpinned by a strong belief within our academy that good nutrition plays an important part in aiding student learning.
Every student is provided with an PIN number/thumb print that enables them to purchase food from the canteen area as well as being used to borrow resources from the Learning Resources Centre. Details of monies within the student’s account are retained on the top up system and students can access top-up machines during break and lunchtimes. Alternatively if parents are registered via World Pay, accounts can be topped up online and balances can be viewed as and when required.
We request that students who have food allergies of any kind speak with a member of the Catering team prior to consuming any food within the canteen. We also request that parents/carers contact the academy with any new changes to the medical needs of their children.
