Ark Bentworth Primary Academy is fully committed to ensuring our pupils enjoy a healthy balanced diet. We value the importance of all pupils sitting down together at tables in small groups and enjoying meal together whilst learning how to eat and hold polite conversation in a well-mannered fashion. Packed lunches are permitted however we encourage parents to opt for school dinners so that they can enjoy a healthy, hot meal.
The menu currently rotates on a 2 week basis. Parents can order and pay for school meals using our online payment system: Ipayimpact. For help on ipayimpact please click here: https://www.ark-spark.co.uk/parent-system-support
School meals are free for all children in Reception to Year 6, under Universal Free School Meals. Meals are also free for pupils in Nursery who are entitled to Free School Meals. For all other pupils, meals are charged at £2.00 per day, and need to be paid for in advance.
From 7.30am children are offered breakfast. There is no charge for breakfast and all pupils are offered a healthy breakfast grab and go meal when they arrive at school. We believe that no child should start the day hungry and that breakfast provides vital fuel for learning.
