School meals at Bradon Forest are provided by a specialist catering company, Aspens.  Food is available to purchase before school, at break and lunch times.  Key Stage 3 students can purchase food in D2 and Key Stage 4 students from the main hall.

We have a cashless catering system in place.  This system is much quicker with less queuing and gives parents and carers more transparency as they can see what food is actually being purchased.  Students pay for their food using their biometric data and do not need to bring cash into school.  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.  Funds can be transferred for students’ lunch accounts via parent pay.

Special Diets
Special diets are an important part of the catering service provided by Aspens.  We can provide food for students if they have an intolerance, an allergy or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.
