School Meals

COVID-19 Arrangements

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the school is offering a restricted catering service at the moment, comprising of lunch and break only. Meals are paid via a contactless till system using the student’s ID Card (which is linked to their ParentPay account). For those not ordering lunch, of course a packed lunch must be brought in, instead.

Please note that breakfast service is currently paused, please ensure your child has either eaten at home, or if needed, brings in something to be eaten on site. We also highly recommend a water bottle is brought in, full, at the start of the day, which can be refilled as necessary during the school day.

Alliance in Partnership (AiP) is the FRESH FOOD caterer at school offering varied menus using fresh U.K. meats, fresh salads and fresh vegetables every day from our local suppliers. Full details of our Lunch menu can be found on the Menu document on this page, hot food is also available before school and at break. All meals are made on site with fresh ingredients.

A cash-less payment system is operated reducing the problems of cash in the school and encouraging healthy eating. Payment can be made online via ParentPay.

Students' credit balance is debited each time they purchase food items from the cafeteria at breakfast, break and lunch.

An average daily spend is estimated at £3.40 per day, although your son may spend more if they purchase food and drinks at breakfast and break too.  The Main Meal and Dessert of the Day at lunchtime is £2.40.

To keep track of your ParentPay balance and ensure your child has sufficient Dinner Money, the school strongly recommends you set up a Low Balance Alert. Note that this is FREE if the Alert via email option is used.  Please click here for more information

The daily spend limit per student is currently set at £7.50 as a default to allow for students to buy food at breakfast, break, and lunch. If you wish to raise or lower this limit for your child, please email the school kitchen at the address below.
