Reduced Menu & No Cash!

When we return in September, we will be operating a reduced Menu in the Restaurant. We will not be accepting any cash for school lunches which means all parent/carers need to pay online using ParentPay (or by cheque to The Bulwell Academy). ParentPay account details have been sent to all parents/carers. Please top up your child’s account before the return to school.

For more details about our reduced Menu, online payments and claiming Free School Meals, please visit our School Meals page below.

Update 7 September: We have had to reduce the menu further to allow for meals to be served quickly to students. We are currently updating our ordering procedures, and will be moving to Menu Selection on ParentPay. Further details to follow.
