School Dining Hall
The school catering service is run by the school. This enables the school to respond quickly to feedback from students and staff and means that the school can offer good quality, balanced meals at a reasonable price. The Dining Hall is cashless and meals are mainly purchased using biometric data. This reduces the possibility of students losing dinner money or lunch cards. Parents can top up their child’s lunch account at any time and from any location using ParentPay. The daily food offering to students has changed over the last few years after a discussion with the school council. The school is committed to producing healthy but tasty food and reducing the amount of waste that is produced.
In June 2018 all students were given a refillable water bottle by CASCA, the school’s community association, to reduce the need to purchase bottles of water and in September 2018 the school stopped the use of disposable cutlery, plates and bowls to reduce the amount of plastic waste produced each break and lunch time. This was also assisted by CASCA.
The school has purchased a plastic bottle recycling bin to encourage students to recycle drink bottles after use.
The lunch menus run on a three-week rotation and are publicized on the school website and in the Dining Hall.
Details of allergens can be found on the school website and in the Dining Hall. Further information is available from the catering team, who can be contacted through the main school email address.
Students are allowed to take bottles of water into lessons. No other drinks are allowed. There are cold water fountains around the main school block.
