Catering & Lunchtimes
The school has an outside caterer, Sodexo. There is an emphasis on Healthy Eating and the menus reflect this. Different year groups will be eating in designated areas.
The food is served in the canteens on a cafeteria basis with individually priced items (cost of a traditional two-course ‘meal deal’ is currently £2.67 but snack items are also available)
Students are encouraged to bring a packed lunch to be eaten in the canteen areas or designated areas outside
Drinks brought in to school should only be in plastic containers. Drinking water is available in the canteen. Students may only take bottled water with a sports cap with them to lessons.
• No fizzy drinks should be brought into school
• No products containing nuts should be brought into school in packed lunches or snacks
Payment in the canteen
Accounts should be topped up via Scopay (separate log-in information will be sent to parents and carers) ready for students to purchase their food.

Getting to us
Staff are on duty at the start and end of the day to supervise students entering and leaving the school site.
As we only have one main entrance for vehicles, we ask that parents refrain from driving into the school grounds between 8.15 – 8.40am and 2.45 – 3.30pm unless they are collecting a student who is unwell. The school is situated on a very busy junction so please help us by not creating a hazard to vehicles entering and leaving the school grounds. As it is such a busy intersection, it is essential that students use the underpass when leaving via the main entrance. Students must also use the bridge link when leaving via the DT gates on West Barnes Lane.
Students can choose to cycle to school. Any student who brings a bicycle to school does so entirely at their own risk. All students cycling to school are strongly encouraged to wear a cycle helmet and advised to undertake a cycling proficiency test.
