Great Bowden Academy recognizes its commitment to teaching children about making healthy choices and to providing a healthy environment in which to learn.

Our catering service, which is managed by a catering manager who works across Great Bowden and Ridgeway Academies, provides delicious and balanced hot lunches, prepared to strict nutritional guidelines

We offer children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 free school lunches in line with government policy. For children in Key stage 2 (years 3-6) lunches cost £2.30 per day payable in advance. (Dinners can be paid for online through  parent pay or at a pay point, please see the office for details.).

If your child is under 19 and in full-time education, you may be able to get free school meals for them if you get one of these benefits:

We can accommodate a small number of adult lunches, if ever you’d like to join your child for lunch please book a week in advance and try for yourself (£2.90).

We provide our younger children with a piece of fruit for a mid-morning snack and encourage older, KS2 pupils to bring in a ‘fruit only’ snack to keep them going until lunchtime. Fruit can be fresh, preserved (small cans or plastic tubs) dried, juiced or pureed – but must be pure and not include added sugar. Carrots, cucumber and tomatoes are popular choices

Drinking enough water is very important to ensure that children’s brains are functioning to their full potential for learning, so we encourage pupils to bring an unbreakable water bottle to school with them every day – filled with water only.
NHS-Change For Life offers this advice about preparing packed lunches for children at school.
