At Bearsted Primary Academy, we provide hot school dinners which all children are entitled to under the Universal Infant Free School Meals Government scheme. This happens automatically, there is no need for parents/carers to request meals, children should simply indicate that they require a school meal at morning registration. However, if you would rather your child have a packed lunch we ask that it be healthy and balanced. Any items containing nuts are not allowed to be brought into school as we are a no nut environment. We are also a water only school. Please can you make sure your child is coming in with only water in their bottles which they have access to at all times. At lunch, they are all given their own cup and water is available to them at all times.

Once our children join Key Stage 2, meals will cost £2.30 per day and should be paid for through Parent Pay. Children may be eligible for Free School Meals if parents/carers are in receipt of certain benefits. For further information please ask at Reception or email us at

Our meals are provided by Cucina.
