We aim to make students aware of the importance of healthy eating and adopting a healthy lifestyle particularly through sporting participation. Ernest Bevin was the first secondary school in Wandsworth to receive Healthy Schools Status.
NOTE: In light of the national living wage increase the cost of school lunches will be £2.55 per meal with effect from 1st April 2020.
At the request of most parents/carers, we are planning some changes to the ways in which parents/carers pay for school meals and trips. The aim is to reduce cash handling, increase the uptake of meals and ease the process of payments. The new system will also allow families more information about how the money is spent.
The new system is called ParentMail +Pay and will be in place for first school day in September 2019. +Pay allows you to pay for items using their website, mobile phone app, or use the large network of PayPoint locations in convenience stores and supermarkets around the country.
There will be a limited transition period during which cash or cheque transactions can be made via the School Office. We intend to be completely cashless by December 2019.
A message will be sent out to parents in the next couple of weeks explaining how to set up an account. You need to be signed up by August 2019 ready for September 2019.
We also need to make families aware that from September 2019, the MyEd app is the main and only means by which the College sends out reports and information about the college. It is therefore vital that you have downloaded and registered on MyEd.
The cost of a main hot meal is £2.55 a day. Baguettes, pasta pots and soup are also available at competitive prices. Click on the link above and the menu will open in a new window.
College meals are provided by Edwards & Ward caterers who prepare food on site that fulfills all current Government requirements for healthy living. A choice of hot meals (including a vegetarian option) are served daily as well as baguettes, pasta, soup and baked potatoes. All meat is Halal. There is a also a food service at break time where students can buy healthy snacks and drinks.
We operate a cashless biometric system to pay for meals to make the dinner service as speedy as possible.
Please note energy drinks, fizzy drinks and those with high sugar or caffeine content do not fit with the college’s commitment to Healthy Eating and should not be brought into school.
