School Dinners

Venture Academy offers a selection of fresh, healthy meals for pupils. We offer a selection of hot and cold meal choices and a dessert. There is a 3 weekly menu (see below) which changes termly. Pupils are able to bring in a packed lunch if they would prefer (no nuts or fizzy drinks please).

Dinners cost £3.50 a day (£17.50 a week) and this can be paid via cash or cheque made payable to Venture Academy. 

We are currently looking into becoming a 'cashless' school by moving to Parentpay. Parents will be able to pay for their childs' school meals online. More information about this to follow!

Medication in School

If your child needs to take medication during the school day we ask that you complete a 'Medication Consent Form'.

A copy of the care Medication Consent Form is below.

If anything changes with regards to your child's medication then we need to complete a Medication Consent Form each time there is a change to ensure we have the most accurate information.

Please note that there are strict guidelines provided by the Warwickshire School Health and Well-being Service about having medication in school.

Please also let us know if your child has allergies as soon as you are aware.
