At Bolingbroke Academy we believe healthy eating plays a vital role in supporting your child’s education. The benefits are three-fold: the pupils’ ability to concentrate in the classroom increases, they gain a greater appreciation for cultural, fresh and seasonal ingredients, and they enjoy socialising with friends over a meal.

It is our policy to provide pupils and staff with a high quality catering service that provides the best possible value for money. ARK is committed to providing healthy meals that pupils enjoy eating. It wants all pupils to have the confidence, knowledge and understanding to make appropriate food choices in their future lives.

Our nutritional standards are in line with national programmes for Healthy Schools and we are committed to promoting an ethos and environment which encourages healthy lifestyles. The catering team will ensure that the food and drink available across the Academy day reinforces the healthy lifestyle message.

Paying for meals

Bolingbroke Academy operates a cashless biometric system (please see the ‘WisePay’ section of this website under the “Life at School” menu). We believe a cashless system will minimise any opportunity for pupils to lose or overspend money. The current daily Academy Meal price is £2.60. Please note that no refunds are offered in lieu of absence.

To support pupils’ meal times at home we provide two healthy eating opportunities during the day:

Mid-morning break time

The mid-morning break provides the opportunity for pupils to go to the toilet and have a light snack  which can be purchased via WisePay and eaten in the dining area. Please click here to see the price list: Breaktime snacks price list 2020
