Food Hygiene Rating

The food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection or visit by the local authority. Hammond Academy is a 5* rating, the highest award.

We are proud of the quality and variety of food on offer to our children for their school meals.  The menu rolls over on a three weekly basis – please ensure you have spoken to your child about the options so they can give their choice to their teacher during morning registration.

For the latest menu, please see the below documents. It is really important that menu’s and payments are submitted to the school office and payment is made on School Gateway.


As a school we feel that a nutritious meal is really important for our pupils, to ensure they are able to focus throughout the day.  If you would like to receive more information, or would like to provide feedback on our school meals.

Please email dinners@hammondacademy for further information.

Free School Meals

From September 2009 to July 2011, three local authorities participated in a pilot to provide free school meals to maintained primary school children. Durham and Newham provided universal free school meals to all primary pupils, and Wolverhampton extended the current eligibility criteria to include all families in receipt of Working Tax Credit, for primary and secondary pupils. The pilots looked at the health benefits of free school meals and investigated whether free school meals:

  • reduced obesity/had an impact on a child’s BMI
  • changed eating habits at home
  • impacted on behaviour and academic performance at school
  • improved school standards
  • improved general health and wellbeing.
