At Sun Academy Bradwell, we commission Chartwells to provide the catering for our lunches and ensure that meals are healthy and full of nutrition.


Parents are welcome to provide their child with a healthy packed lunch or pay for a school dinner. The cost is current £2.50 per day for pupils in Nursery, Year 3, 4 5, and 6. Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are entitled to a universal free school meal should they wish to take this offer up.

Payments for school meals is completed through ParentPay. Please ensure your account is in credit so that the cost can be taken on a Friday. Persistent debt will result in the facility being removed.

If you are on a low income you can apply for free school meals. Applying for this may also bring other benefits such as uniform and trip support (so it’s worth applying if you are in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 also).
