School Catering

Children use up a great deal of energy during a full school day. They need to concentrate during lessons and recharge their batteries for the afternoon. Eating a school lunch helps to achieve this and provides:

  • A hot, healthy, nutritionally balanced meal
  • A high proportion of traditionally prepared, homemade dishes that provide choice and variety to suit all tastes
  • Value for money
  • Convenience - saving you time preparing packed lunches
  • Improved learning abilities - studies have shown that children concentrate better in lessons if they have had a balanced lunchtime meal
  • Teaches children the social skills involved with eating with others and how to make choices
  • Allows children to relax in a safe, supervised environment with friends

The School Kitchen provides freshly prepared hot and cold meals daily. Packed lunches may also be brought from home and supplemented by purchases from the canteen if required. It is not necessary to advise the school if your child wishes to change from a school meal to a packed lunch, as the kitchen operates a cafeteria system. The canteen operates a cashless biometric system that enables students to purchase food by a biometric reading of the finger.  An on-line account is topped up using School Gateway  so that parents can see what food has been selected and how much is being spent each day.

Please feel free to discuss any dietary requirements your child may have, ie; vegetarian, diabetic, etc. Telephone or call and see the Head of Kitchen, Mrs Wither, Extension 217, who will be pleased to help.
