At Future Academies Watford, we believe that a nutritious diet and regular exercise can be the fuel for our students’ success, giving them the energy to face the challenges of the day.
To this end, we guide our students to make healthy life choices. We have a bike-shed and encourage students to choose active and environmentally conscious methods of transportation. In the school restaurant, delicious, healthy, and balanced meals are freshly prepared at lunchtimes. Lunchtimes are also an opportunity to socialise with friends and peers over a fresh, tasty meal. The restaurant menu changes weekly but always offer a fantastic choice of hot meals, soups, salads, and sandwiches, with our four-week menu system providing variety of choice.
To this end, we guide our students to make healthy life choices.
We do strongly recommend, therefore, that our students eat in our restaurant. If your child is bringing in packed lunches, we ask that these include healthy and balanced choices. A good guideline for a healthy packed lunch is a sandwich, piece of fruit, dairy product and small snack. Fizzy drinks and energy drinks are not allowed, and only clear bottles of water are permitted during lessons.
School meals are paid for via a ‘cashless catering’ system: all students ‘pay’ via a fingerprint impression that links to their individual account. This can be topped up over the internet by credit/ debit card or by cash in school. Using this system reduces the need for students to carry money to school each day, and speeds up the lunch queue.
