Food at Nelson Academy is produced and provided by Aspens catering team and is of very high quality. All meals are nutritionally balanced and designed to appeal to children. Options available on a daily basis include a hot meal, pasta, and jacket potatoes.
A ‘complete meal’ is currently £2.53 per day, which includes a main course/pasta/jacket potato, pudding/fruit/yogurt/jelly and a drink.
Vegetarian meals are provided daily, and special diets can also be catered for.
Provision is also made for pupils to have a home packed lunch. Pupils may switch between an academy meal and a home-packed lunch for your convenience.
Please note that Nelson Academy is a cashless school, so all school meals must be ordered and paid for on the Aspens Select Website.
You may send your child in with a healthy snack from home if you wish. No sweets are allowed.
Children in reception are provided with a snack through the National Fruit and Veg scheme.
