Lunches and Payments
We are a ‘Healthy School’ so we encourage students to eat a varied and healthy diet.
The School Dining Hall is open for breakfast at 8am, for break at 11:10am and lunch at 1:30pm for students in years 7- 11 whilst it is open all day for 6th formers.
If you wish to bring a packed lunch into school, it must be eaten in the Dining Hall. We discourage students bringing fizzy drinks; water is available in the Dining Hall. Due to the time allocation, students do not leave the premises at lunchtime.
Cashless Dining System / Biometrics
The dining hall operates a cashless system. Each child will have their thumbprint scanned so money can be credited to accounts using biometric revaluation machines, which are to be found inside and near the Dining Hall. You can also pay for your sons/daughters dinner money via the ParentMail app
When using Cashless Catering the minimum payment is £5.00 (ie. Approximately 2 days’ worth of dinner)
If you believe that your child qualifies for free school meals. Once their balance gets low (under £1) parents will be notified by text message.
