Catering at Valentines High School

We pride ourselves in being a Healthy School, encouraging our students to lead a healthy lifestyle and to make healthy food choices.

We are delighted to announce our new appointment of Caterlink as our caterer from June 2015.  Caterlink have a strong track record of providing healthy, local and fresh food.  Over 95% of their offer is prepared from scratch on site every day.  Their Executive Chef has developed a range of healthy and attractive food options.  They operate a 2 weekly menu cycle for both break and lunch – more details are available here -  Break Time Menu, Lunch Time Menu  Please click here for current price list

Students, parents, governors and staff were involved in the selection of the catering company and one of the factors in our choice was the value offered.  Caterlink have a range of meal deals (both hot and cold), as well as offers on water and a choice of smaller portions of sandwiches, wraps and desserts.  

Developments

We are hoping to press on with developing the food service here.

A café style offer for our 6th formers is now available in their Common Room from September 2015.  This will serve a range of hot and cold food and drink at break and lunchtimes.

We are planning to introduce a breakfast service for the whole school from 8am to 8.25am after October half term.

UPDATE ON WISEPAY - CASHLESS CATERING - 17th September 2015

Wisepay is a fully cashless, online system for collecting dinner money, trips and other activities from September 2015.  This will allow you to see your child's balance and their food choices and help to reduce queueing in the Dining Hall.

All logins have now been distributed to parents.  The system is now live to accept payments.  Please contact bne@valentines-sch.org.uk if you have not received the login details for your child.  No cash or cheques will be accepted in school. 

For cashless catering, if your child eats in the canteen, please top up your child's Wisepay cashless catering account.

 

We would love to hear any feedback on the service so that we can add to our development plans – please contact Ms B Newman (Finance & Business Manager) at bne@valentines-sch.org.uk if you have any queries or wish to offer any comments on catering.
