Lunch menu

  • lunch

Here at The Co-operative Academy of Manchester, we pride ourselves in serving the best meals possible to our students, offering them the best value for money around.

All our menus meet government guidelines for healthy school meals.  We are currently working with our suppliers to achieve the Food for Life bronze standard in school meal preparation, which will ensure your children are being fed healthy, home prepared meals, in which the products are locally sourced and seasonal.  All of the meat used in our cooking is Red Tractor approved, and only free range eggs are used in any home prepared dishes.

A meal deal in the Servery is competitively priced at £2.30.  This includes any main meal, any dessert and a drink.  If your child qualifies for free school meals, they can get a meal deal every day.  They will also receive an allowance at break time.  A free breakfast is available to all students every morning between 7.45am and 8.20am in the dining area.  This consists of free fruit juice, toast and crumpets.

Encourage your child to try a meal in the Servery.  We think they’ll be pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety on offer.
