Recently, we asked the school community if they would like Halal meat to be served at Angel Oak Academy. Families who responded to the survey were overwhelmingly supportive of the idea, with 66% in favour of making the change.
In light of this feedback, and after consultation with the Trust, the Local Authority, and the School Governing Body, it has been agreed that all meat served at Angel Oak will be Halal from after the February half term.
We understand that some parents were not in favour of the change, but we believe making this adjustment will allow the greatest number of our pupils access to the full lunch menu and a more balanced diet throughout their school day. Furthermore, this is a step needed to improve cultural inclusivity at our academy.
In light of this change, should you wish to update your child’s meal preference, please inform the academy office (firstname.lastname@example.org) at your earliest convenience.
