The Bulwell Academy offers a free breakfast to the value of 60p to those students arriving at school between 07.45 am and 08.15 am. On your child's lunch account records, this will show as "FREE" BREAKFAST taken to the value of 60p.

Ways to Pay

At The Bulwell Academy, we run a cashless system for paying for school meals, trips and other items. We prefer students to not bring cash into school. We offer the following Ways to Pay:

Online using ParentPay, (our preferred choice of payments)

PayPoint card (topping up using cash in local stores)

You can view your child's lunch account online using ParentPay(even if you don't pay for your child's meals online).

Free School Meals

If you think you may be eligible to claim free school meals for your child, please contact Pupil Benefits at Nottingham City Council on 0115 915 4084. Click on the Free School Meals image for more details.

The Free School Meal Allowance is £2 per day, which can be used to buy a Meal Deal for £2 or other choices from the Lunchtime Menu. The £2 allowance will appear on your child's account when your child scans their fingerprint at lunchtime. If your child spends less than £2, the remainder does not carry forward to the next day but is removed from the account.
