One of the fundamental components of providing a positive learning environment is to offer a well thought through approach to catering. The nutritional needs of young minds is at the centre of what we offer our students with balanced meals and snacks that are low in fat, salt and sugar available at every break and lunch time.
We know that “a little and often” is a good guideline for nutrition, so we provide a break and ;lunch time throughout the day when students can choose whether to take their main meal, to take a snack or just have a drink and go to the loo. We also have good facilities for students who prefer to bring their own packed lunches.
We encourage independence and recognise individual tastes so also provide salads, wraps and baguettes. We also operate a cashless payment system where each child is allocated an account that you can put credit on via your ParentPay account or come into school and get a voucher which you can use at many outlets if you do not have access to online services. Students that receive free school meals have their accounts automatically credited ensuring their privacy. If you would like to confidentially discuss the provision of free school meals for your child, please contact the main school office.
Typically, children spend between £2.00 – £2.50 per day and parents may obtain a print out of their child’s account purchases if they wish. Please contact the school office to arrange this.
The Trust aims for all of it’s schools to become cashless, with this in mind we now use ParentPay which is a website where you can pay for all activities, trips and lunches for you child/ren. If you do not have access to a PC you can come into school and get a ‘voucher’ which allows you to top up the credit on your ParentPay account at many outlets. School will be ceasing the facility for you to send cash into school for lunches by the end of the term when we finish for Christmas, we will send plenty of reminders to allow you to activate your ParentPay account. Should you need help to access and activate your account please contact Finance at Stourport High School and VIth Form College and we will be happy to help you. The ParentPay website is https://www.parentpay.com
