School Meals

Our school meals service is provided by ABM Caterers, leading independent experts in the Contract Catering Industry with an excellent reputation both in the education sector and beyond.

ABM ensures that all students are provided with:

  • A high quality meal provision
  • A range of choice for all students each day
  • An opportunity for students to be involved in special ‘theme days’
  • Opportunities for students to experience different cultural foods
  • Easy transactions for school meals to be retained for parents

The ParentPay system is our preferred method of payment for school lunches, cash can be made at local PayPoint stores with a barcode obtained from the school office.

The children use an electronic system to order their lunch in the morning which is monitored and supervised by their class teacher.
