School meals at Bradon Forest are provided by a specialist catering company, Aspens. Special arrangements are currently in place as we are not able to mix year groups at break and lunchtimes.

It is important that parents use the online system to place money on their child’s account.  This will avoid them having to load money onto their account manually at school. When buying food, catering staff will sanitise the reader that scans students’ fingers after each use.

Funds can be transferred for students’ lunch accounts via the parent gateway:

Lunch Arrangements
