Welcome to the catering page of our website. We aim to make students aware of the importance of healthy eating and adopting a healthy lifestyle particularly through regular sporting participation. We want to enable our students to be environmentally aware and encourage students to bring their own water bottle which they can refill at the water fountains that are available. This means students stay hydrated and reduce plastic waste.

Academy Caterers

Academy meals are provided by Edwards & Ward caterers who have a long-established relationship with Wandsworth schools. The on-site catering team prepare fresh food on site that fulfils all current Government requirements for healthy living. A choice of hot meals, including a vegetarian option, is served daily as well as a more deli style section serving baguettes, pasta, soup and baked potatoes. Healthy eating is important for the students so that they can have a nutritious tasty meal. All meat is Halal. There is also a food service at morning break time where students can buy healthy snacks and drinks.

Students should not bring in sweets, sugary foods, chewing gum, fizzy drinks or energy drinks particularly those with a high caffeine content as part of the academy’s commitment to Healthy Eating.

The cost of a main hot meal is £2.75 a day. Baguettes, pasta pots and soup are also available at competitive prices.

Packed lunch

If your child prefers a packed lunch, students are welcome to bring in a packed lunch; this should be eaten in the lunch hall. Jugs of water are available for students to help themselves to cups of water free of charge. We encourage families to provide healthy packed lunches.

Cashless School

We operate a cashless biometric system to pay for meals to make the dinner service as speedy as possible. The students are set up on this system as soon as they join Ernest Bevin Academy.

Parents use ParentMail +Pay to pay for food (and trips and other items) via their website, mobile phone app or use the large network of PayPoint locations in convenience stores and supermarkets around the country.

Parents joining the academy will be given a log in and information about how to set up an account. (To Register: Please follow the link in the email or text you received from your school, or request a link from them.)
