At West Acton Primary we pride ourselves on ensuring our children have a healthy diet whilst at school. We first achieved Healthy Schools Accreditation from the Ealing Borough in 2004 and continue to uphold this accreditation which demonstartes our commitment to promoting healthy choices for children. to help enforce this we have teamed up with the following suppliers:
The fruit and Vegetable Scheme
The UK's fruit and vegetable scheme which was established in 2004 is part of the 5 A DAY programme to increase fruit and vegetable consumption. Under the scheme, children in Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2 get a free piece of fruit or vegetable every day at school supplied by Minor Weir and Willis Limted.
The Milk Scheme
Milk is supplied by Cool Milk; children under the age of 5 are entitled to free milk with subsidised milk for those over 5 years old.
School lunch is provided by Harrisons Caterer. A menu for the academic year can be obtained from the school office. School Meals cost £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week and are payable in advance via the school office or online. Halal Meat is now available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Meals not taken due to sickness or other absences and school closures will be credited by contacting the caterers directly.

Are you entitled to Free School Meals?
Did you know that the school receives additional money for every child registered as entitled to free school meals, even if your child doesn't actually eat a school meal at school?
When you successfully apply for free school meals the school will receive an extra £600 of government funding even if your child does not want the meal. This additional funding (known as Pupil Premium) will be used to help children from lower income families do their very best at school. Please also be aware that if your family is registered for free school meals you may be eligible to cliam other forms of assistance, for instance with home to school transport.
To find out more or apply for free school meals please contact the school office or click here.
Children may bring a packed lunch in an unbreakable container, which has your child’s name on it (no cans or glass bottles please). Packed lunches should provide a healthy well balanced meal. Sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks are not permitted. Children should also be provided with a healthy drink for meal times.
Sweets and Treats
Sweets to be shared amongst the class for special occasions are welcomed, but sweets as a playtime snack or part of lunch are not permitted. Crisps should only be brought to school to be eaten as part of a packed lunch.
