Dear Parent/Carers

New Caterers

I am delighted to inform you that, after a thorough tendering process which involved students as well as staff, the school’s catering operation has been taken over by Innovate Services Limited. Over the summer break we have also spruced up the canteen and invested in a new 6th Form café.

I have attached a copy of the tariff to illustrate what is available. Innovate will also run promotions and specials on a regular basis, for instance, between 12th and 16th September the specials are to celebrate “Independencia de Mexico Day”.

The method of payment in the canteen is still the same, (cashless via fingerprint scan or PIN), and your child’s account will need to be topped up via Parentpay. Please ensure that your child does have sufficient money on their account for their food as Innovate are not able to offer credit.

If your child is entitled to Free School Meals they will still get the same daily allowance, but we have relaxed the rules a little and they can spend their allowance either at morning break, lunchtime or both.

We have also introduced an improved breakfast service which is available from 8.00a.m., offering a good range of options including 3 and 5 item breakfasts. If your child is entitled to Pupil Premium, they are able to have a free breakfast, the 3 item breakfast at a value of £1.35.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.


Many thanks


Yours faithfully
