You’ll find a range of regular promotions, too, offering special discounts on a range of popular food items.

Special dietary requirements

If your child has a special dietary requirement – such as diabetic, coeliac, low fat and dairy intolerances or a food allergy - we will be happy to plan and provide a school meal that meets your child's needs.

We can also adapt menus to meet religious needs. Find out more about special diets.

Cashless payments

Our secondary schools operate a cashless system which helps to ease queuing, avoids pupils having to carry cash in school, and protects the identity of pupils on free school meals. Some of these systems use biometrics or fingerprint readers for pupils to access their accounts, and others use cashless cards.

To load cash onto your child’s account, payments can either be made at the school via cash loaders or by visiting cashless payments.
