The 'Event'

Our dining area has been branded to look bright, modern and appealing to students of all ages.     

Caterlink meat main meals are freshly prepared on site and made with Red Tractor/Farm Assured

fresh meat whilst their suppliers are audited by an external body to ensure they comply with their

high standards and statutory obligations.                                           

The current menus can be found here. and are rotated each week.

Biometric Recognition

The Academy uses a fingertip recognition software to identify individual users to allow payment for food.  We scan two fingers of the students, these images are then converted to a mathematical algorithm, a series of numbers, which can be used to identify the user.  The scanned image is then discarded.  Parents permission is obtained for this process on completion of the Student Information sheet which takes place on enrolment and every September thereafter.
