We operate a Cashless Catering system in school which shares the common biometric database that is used for our printing system and our Learning Resource Centre for issuing library books. There are two ways that student accounts can be topped up. Firstly students can put cash in one of the four Revaluation units located around school, secondly parents can deposit funds using debit or credit card online through the ParentPay website. Using ParentPay also has the advantage that parents can monitor exactly what their child is eating on a daily basis and parents can also use this method to pay for school trips, shop purchases and other available services.
The school adheres to the mandatory food based stabdards for secondary schools and we provide allergen information for all the food we serve. We have also been awarded a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 stars by the local authority.
