School meals

The school catering service provides over 30,000 school meals every day. A great deal goes into our dinners to make sure they taste good, they’re healthy and most of all that they meet the requirements of our most demanding customers – our students!
All our menus meet the Government’s national nutritional requirements and provide children with 
healthy, freshly cooked meals.  Vegetarian options are available and menus can even be tailored to meet medical dietary requirements.

For the Year 7 to Year 11 students, there are several areas in which the students can eat:  the main cafeteria, the Sherwood Gardens and the Clumber Cafe.
Tuxford Academy uses sQuid, a cashless system that requires individual student's fingerprint to access their account.  Parents/Carers can add money to the student's account and check the account's balance periodically.  Any queries about an individual's sQuid account, should be addressed to the Catering Manager who is based in the main academy kitchen.

Students on Free School Meals, will have money added each day. To find out about eligibility for Free School Meals, please click here.
Paying for your meals:
The cost for a "meal of the day" from September 2017 is:  £2.25.   
The "meal of the day" includes a dinner, a pudding and a bottle of water.  This price increase will also apply to those students who are in receipt of a "Free School Meal". 
Cheques for school meals must be made payable to ‘Nottinghamshire County Council’. 
Any cheques received with ‘Tuxford School’ or’ Tuxford Academy', as the payee,  will be returned. 


Clumber Cafe
Our Clumber Café provides an assortment of hot and cold foods.  The café brings a new range of exciting foods to our students in a pleasant, relaxed eating environment.
Post 16 Refectory:
The Post 16 Centre students have their own kitchen and dining facilities upstairs. They can also use sQuid, or pay for their food in cash.  Again, any students on Free School Meals, will have money automatically added to their sQuid account each day.
Tuxford Academy has a Student Food Forum.  To find out more about this, please visit the Student Food Forum web page.
