Further information about how our Trust and schools are taking necessary precautions since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, can be found in our Trust’s ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) website section’.


We have put together a strategy/plans to help children continue to learn while they are at home. This can be found at https://www.cedarchildrensacademy.org.uk/curriculum-overview/home-learning

Lunch Times

Lunch Time is 12:15 pm – 1.15 pm for all pupils in Reception and Key Stage One. Pupils eat in the hall in the Infant building,

Lunch Time is 12.30 pm – 1.30 pm for all pupils in Key Stage Two. Pupils eat in the dining hall in the Junior building.

Some pupils will eat their lunch before going out to the playground, whilst others will go to the playground first and eat later.

Parents can take their child home for lunch, although the majority of pupils choose to stay on the school premises. Pupils staying for lunch can choose to have either a hot lunch or a packed lunch. We request that there are no cans, glass bottles, fizzy drinks or sweets in pupils’ lunch boxes. This is intended to encourage healthy eating. Any type of chocolate or nut item should also be avoided as there are pupils in school with severe nut allergies.

TCS are our suppliers of school meals. They are a small, established company based in Northfleet and currently provide a catering service to primary schools in Kent and Essex. The focus of the company has always been to provide a quality meal for the children using local suppliers, buying quality produce and making homemade style meals which are cooked fresh each day.

From September 2014 all children in Reception and Key Stage One will be entitled to a free school meal under the Universal Free School Meal Programme.

School meals currently cost £2.15 per day – £10.75 per week.

Any parent who has an entitlement to a free school lunch is asked to speak with a member of the office staff.

You can check your entitlement to free school meals at: https://myfreeschoolmeals.firmstep.com
