We have our own in-house catering service and learners enjoy the lunch served daily on a cafeteria basis. The catering team works across the campus to provide healthy, nutritious food to both schools. On offer is a range of hot and cold meals, and always vegetarian options. We provide a pleasant dining environment for all learners, whether they have school dinners or packed lunches, with the latter being given the option to enjoy eating ‘al fresco’ on the outdoor picnic tables.
Meals are paid for by using a secure finger recognition system whereby learners’ fingerprints are allocated to our records. Learners are able to add money to their accounts via the machines located in each school in order to pay for their meals, or parents can provide a cheque or cash (young children do not add to their own account).
Free school meals are available to learners whose families are in receipt of benefits, in accordance with criteria determined by the Government. The account is automatically credited with the cost of a meal so learners are not identifiable. Parents who wish to enquire about eligibility for free school meals should contact the Local Authority at:
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council Adult and Children’s Services Department
PO Box 83, Council Offices
Redcar, TS10 1YA
Learners who are registered for free school meals attract further funding, through Pupil Premium, which allows us to provide additional financial support e.g. contribution to the cost of trips; even if your child does not choose to take a school meal it is worth registering.
The campus recently received Gold at the Food4Health Awards. Food4Health Awards recognise and reward food businesses that offer healthy food options and promote healthy eating. There are 3 awards; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each considers the types of foods and ingredients used, how food is prepared and cooked and how the business promotes healthy eating.
