At Tree Tops Primary Academy, the school dinners are provided for us by a catering company named Olive Dining. They have recently launched a new mobile app that will allow clients to check things such as menus, special offers and news. Please feel free to download this app in order to gain any additional information regarding the dinners at Tree Tops.
The charge is £2.35 per day from September 2019 (£11.75 per week). Money to be paid in advance. Arrangements can be made to pay for dinners half a term in advance. Please contact the school if you wish to do this.
Applications for free Academy meals should be made to Kent County Council via this link: Free School Meals or alternatively complete a form available from the school office. Once approval has been given there is a choice of a cooked meal or packed lunch.
Packed meals may be brought by children as an alternative to the Academy meal. They should be packed in a suitable container, marked with the child’s name and class. Drinks should be brought in unbreakable containers. We recommend that packed lunches are a healthy option and fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate bars are not allowed.
At lunchtimes, although a designated member of staff is on duty, the children are under the immediate supervision of the Midday Meal Supervisors. The children must respect and follow the instructions of the adults supervising them.

“Pupils speak highly about the quality of education they receive. They are very loyal to the Academy, each other and the staff. They appreciate the support they receive to do their best. Pupils’ conduct around the Academy and in class is excellent.”
“Teachers provide highly detailed and effective feedback on a regular basis so that pupils know what they need to do to improve. Pupils regularly respond to marking to ensure they improve upon their understanding. Pupils are now given more opportunities to complete their work fluently and at greater length. Good progress is strongly evident across the books surveyed.”
“Books are well presented and demonstrate that pupils take pride in their work. They contain a varied number of tasks and activities for pupils.”
“Systems to keep pupils safe are rigorous. They feel safer because behaviour has improved and there are good opportunities to learn how to keep themselves safe in different situations.”
“As a result of the senior leaders’ determination and attention to detail, the quality of education has improved, aspirations have been raised and staff morale is high.”
