Cashless Catering

All pupils have been given a booklet explaining the Cashless Catering system which will be introduced in the canteen in the Autumn term. Inside the booklet is a form to be signed and returned to school. If you have not yet seen the booklet please ask your child for it, or if it has been lost they should ask for a new one. For more information please read the Cashless Catering booklet available below.
