Secondary Schools Catering Service

We provide a wide range of food choices, created within and in support of The Healthy Eating in Schools (Nutritional Standards and requirements)(Wales) regulations 2013.

Our priority is to ensure that all menus provide balanced and nutritious food choices, as an important and integral part of school life.

Eating healthy nutritionally balanced meals helps support a young person’s continued growth and development, boosting concentration, improving performance and active participation throughout the school day.

Cashless Payment

High Schools operate a system which allows parents/guardians to pay for their school meals by cheque. The cheque is entered onto a computer by the School Cook and the pupils account is credited with the amount. We do not use cash registers in the Dining Room – instead the pupil selects their food from the servery and takes it to one of our ‘Till Pads’, where a member of staff keys in what the pupil has selected and the amount is automatically debited from their account. The pupil is also able to view their account balance at the ‘Till Pad ‘. Pupils are also able to put cash into their account by using one of the electronic Re-Evaluation Units, which are sited throughout the school. The pupil places their finger on the reader built into the machine, puts their money in and the account is automatically credited. Benefits of Cashless Catering: reduces queuing times, eliminates bullying, Parents can request information if they have concerns about eating habits and can be sure that if they pay by cheque or on-line that the money is being spent in School and not in the shop!
