How the canteen works...
The School has excellent on-site catering facilities whereby pupils can purchase breakfast before school (8.30am-8.50am), at mid-morning break (11am-11.20am) and during lunch break (1.20pm-2.00pm).
Every student is set up with an individual account. Money can be added to your child’s account on-line via Schoolcomms (our on-line payment system) or cash can be added at one of three terminals/re-valuation units located in the school canteen. Access to your child’s account is via a biometric system (fingerprint recognition). A letter will be sent to all parents/carers seeking agreement to participate and at the beginning of the academic year, the school will organise for an account to be set via fingerprint recognition. Gel pads are located at till points and recognise a child’s unique fingerprint and calls up their unique account, these are cleaned by Chartwell’s staff on a regular basis.
Schoolcomms enables parents and carers to pay on-line any time 24/7 and reduces the amount of cash being carried around school, as well as saving the school and Catering Partner time and money on administration.
Payments can be made by downloading a payment app. If you have a smartphone, you can download the “School Gateway”
app from the app store (Android and iPhone).
By doing this, both you and the school avoid incurring charges for text messages and future message exchanges will be FREE. It is quick and easy to do. All you need is the e-mail address and mobile phone number that the school holds on record for you.
Alternatively, you can visit the website www.schoolgateway.com and click on ‘new user’. You will receive a text message with a PIN number to log into School Gateway. If you experience any trouble when logging in, please contact the school on 01633 653112 and we will update your details on SIMS. Details on downloading the app are also available via our school website.

SPECIAL DIET PROCEDURE
We define a special diet as a requirement different to the choices offered on the main menu due to an allergy or intolerance. Lifestyle choices such as vegetarianism and religious diets are not defined as a special diet as we are confident our main menu offers a variety of different foods to cater for these needs.
When a referral is received from the school/ parent regarding an allergy or intolerance, this procedure must be followed in order to ensure that we are consistent with our approach in all of our schools.

All menus provide the nutrition that the students needs on a daily basis.
