Our Catering is provided by Robertson FM, under the PFI contract. They are responsible for ensuring the healthy schools agenda is followed carefully, and we work closely together to ensure this. Parents can pay online in advance for school meals via ParentPay, and monitor what is being purchased for peace of mind. Students then use fingertip recognition to pay for meals or drinks, and this in turn speeds up the queues.
Since our move to half-hour rolling lunches, students report a calmer, friendlier atmosphere where all students can sit at a table with friends to eat and socialise.
Please note food cannot be taken outside, as this contributes to litter and seagull nuisance. Students are fantastic at self regulating the lack of litter on site and this is appreciated.
Student Voice also play an active part in aiming to further improve the quality of provision.
