Pupils who choose to bring a packed lunch may eat their meal in the Dining Hall. We encourage our pupils and staff to eat healthily at all times. The School Food Trust has devised suggested menus to aid parents in preparing packed lunches for their children. For further information please click here. Parents are respectfully requested not to send in nuts or nut products at any time.
Water is freely available during each food service, and water dispensers are located in the school. All pupils should bring a reusable, named water bottle to school, every day. We discourage the consumption of sugary juices and squashes. Fizzy drinks and energy drinks are not permitted.
Please note that we do not accept cash payments in the Refectory. Instead, pupils have an electronic account to which parents credit funds via the ParentPay on-line payment system. Parents should credit their child’s account before they begin to use the system. Most parents tend to top up the account on a monthly basis. Any unused funds are returned when a child leaves the school.
To help pupils manage funds there is a £5 daily spend limit programmed into the system for each pupil; this amount can be increased or decreased by emailing the Accounts Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should an account become overdrawn we will allow your child to purchase their meal for that day, however, we would ask parents to top-up the account the same day.
