The academy holds the ‘Healthy Schools Award’ which recognises its commitment to teaching children about making healthy choices and to providing a healthy environment in which to learn.

Our Bowden Bistro catering service launched in January 2016 providing delicious and balanced hot lunches, prepared to strict nutritional guidelines.

Lunches cost £2.20 per day, payable in advance for our Key Stage 2 children

Since September 2014 we have offered children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 free school meals in line with new Government policy. For children in Key stage 2 (years 3 to 6) Lunches cost £2.20 per day, payable in advance (cheques payable to Learn Academies Trust or payable on line via +pay).

We can accommodate a small number of adult lunches, if ever you’d like to join your child for lunch. Book a week in advance and try for yourself!

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. offers this advice about preparing packed lunches for children at school.
