Provision is made at lunchtime for children to stay for a school meal or bring a packed lunch.  School meals are served in a continuous sitting in the hall. School meals are provided by Blackpool Council and are freshly prepared and cooked on site in the school kitchen by cook Maria. The children spend their lunchtime under the direct supervision of Welfare Assistants and Teaching Assistants.  

Universal free school meals are available for all children from Reception to Year 2. School meals for Year 3-6 cost £2.35 per day - £11.75 per week. Westcliff Primary Academy is a cash-less school and so parents are required to pay for their child’s school meals using ParentPay.


We ask you to observe the following arrangements:

  • All drinks must be brought in a plastic container, never glass.

  • Confectionery (chocolate bars, sweets etc.) is NOT permitted

  • Packed lunch boxes must be named on the outside.

  • No fizzy drinks, cans or metal containers are permitted

  • Due to limited storage space please restrict the size of the lunch box.  Do not send backpacks.

Changing between school dinners and packed lunches may take place at the beginning of a term or half term. Notice in writing must be given to the class teacher before the end of the previous term.
