At Ash Green School, we have been working hard to increase the capacity of our catering operation, improve the standard of our catering facilities. Our catering company is ‘Coombs Catering Partnership’ who have recently finalised our new menus for this Autumn Term 2018/2019.
During the summer holidays, the canteen area has been refurbished. Now re-designed to increase the capacity, and create areas where students can sit comfortably and enjoy their meals. Furthermore, a second ‘Snack Bar’ has been installed and will serve students directly onto the Sun Deck, reducing queue times in the canteen area. This provides students with a ‘Grab and Go’ option.
Sixth Form students are able to enjoy their own catering facility, which has been installed into the Sixth Form area.
Students will also be able to select from a range of freshly made batches & baguettes, pastries, desserts, fresh fruit and cold drinks at break and lunch time. Hot drinks are served at breakfast service only. All food items have been nutritionally tested for compliance with school meals healthy eating standards.
Students have been involved in planning our new lunch menu, which includes three main options:
Reminder: energy drinks are not permitted on school site and will be confiscated and disposed of if found to be in a student’s possession.
We use a Cashless Catering & Online Payment System to pay for school meals.
This is a system that incorporates the latest technology and eliminates the need to carry cash throughout the day. It is also biometric so there is no need to carry a card as the system will recognise the thumb print of your child at the revaluation pay points and at the tills. It is important to note that the system does not work from the thumb print itself, but takes a numeric record. The system is used widely and successfully in many schools.
Any amount of money can be paid into your account, with the money spent on food and drink and is deducted daily. To access Parent Pay visit: http://www.parentpay.com
In addition to the online facility for parents, students can also add credit to their accounts using one of two revaluation units situated in our canteen area. All students have been issued with a unique PIN to enable them to credit their accounts and purchase food at break and lunch.
The information sheet on biometrics can be downloaded here . If your query is still unanswered please contact the school reception.
