Our School Meals:
Northfield School and Sports College’s catering service is provided by our own in house catering team.
The food and drink we provide meets the national school food standards. We evaluate our food and drink provision regularly against the standards and seek and respond to student voice and opinions on the food we provide for them.
We have recently introduced oily fish, wholegrains, seeds, vegetable snacks and milk into our menus to further enhance our healthy menu choices.
We serve food twice a day, at break time and lunch time.
Menus are rotated on a 2 weekly cycle and are varied in accordance with seasons and theme weeks to enable us to offer a huge variety of healthy choices to suit all tastes and preferences. Menus can be viewed below:
In accordance with Food Standards Agency guidance, the school makes available to its students, staff and parents, information on the common allergens found in the food it provides. Please refer to the information sheet below for information.
Should you have any further queries, our Catering Manager will be happy to help.
The school operates a cashless catering system that uses biometrics. This system speeds up the queuing process for your child, allows anonymity for students in receipt of free school meals and provides an opportunity for you to receive reports on your child’s food purchasing should you wish. The system also supports the management of students with special dietary needs.
New Year 7 students will be registered on their induction days ready for their start in September.
It is up to you how much you will allow your child to spend and how often you wish them to credit their accounts, though our preference would be weekly. Accounts can be credited in school at our re-value units situated outside of the dining hall, or on line via schoolcomms.
Children on free school meals will be automatically credited each day the price of a free school meal. You may wish to also credit an additional amount to their account.
