We provide a meal service featuring a wide range of healthy options, which is accessible before school and at break time and lunch time.
The cost of a school meal rises from £2.35 to £2.50 in September 2022
We also operate a Breakfast club every day from 8:00am. Students can grab a free bagel or cereal from the Dining hall to start the day.
The school uses a cashless catering system in the dining hall, which enables us to provide a more efficient breakfast, break time and lunch service by reducing queuing times for students.
Benefits of School Gateway
- Parents can pay for school meals in advance rather than on a daily basis thereby reducing the risk of loss or theft.
- Student accounts can be ‘topped’ up as and when required.
- Students entitled to free school meals remain anonymous, as they will purchase meals in the same way as other students.
- Cheque payments can be made to the school which will be loaded onto student accounts. This reduces the need for students to carry cash if this is parental preference.
In order to operate the cashless catering system student accounts are activated using a finger recognition system. When the student account is set up an image is taken of the finger which is subsequently encrypted into a 4 digit number. Please note that the actual fingerprint will not be stored. The data stored for each student will be held in accordance with Becta guidelines and will be kept in accordance with data protection regulations. All information will be destroyed when the student leaves the school.
