The School Day

The School day begins at 8:45am. This time is to focus on preparation for the day ahead. Staff support the children to settle, provide breakfast and ensure children are ready to learn. The end of the day provides reflection time when the children and staff can debrief on challenges throughout the day and next steps needed to ensure progress can be made.

Free school meals for all!

School meals are critical to learners’ well-being and readiness to learn.

Research has shown that children who eat breakfast and lunch at school rely on school meals for half of their daily energy intake.

With food insecurity rates skyrocketing due to the economic hardship triggered by the coronavirus pandemic – one in four children are estimated to be struggling with hunger. School meals are essential to more children than ever. 

At The Kassia Academy, we are pleased to announce that all learners are provided with a daily snack and school meal, free of charge, irrespective of free school meal eligibility. This is our way to support families with the cost of living crisis and to ensure that no child goes hungry.

If you wish to discuss your child's dietary requirements, please contact Kathy Woodrow, Catering Supervisor on 01925 452010 or email kathy.woodrow@tkas.org.uk

School Meals - Willows 

School meals are prepared on a daily basis by our Willows learners (closely supported and supervised by our staffing team) 

A wide variety of fresh, healthy ingredients are delivered to the site on a weekly basis, so that learners can prepare and enjoy a variety of hot and cold food options. 

This is a great way to build confidence and learn invaluable new skills in the kitchen!
