MENUS AND FREE SCHOOL MEALS  



FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Did you know ... just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the academy gets extra money? Register now to make sure we don't miss out.

How Does It Work
  • First, check if you qualify - it is not just if you are unemployed, so please look at the list at the end of the page.
  • Registering is really quick and easy - if you think you qualify, contact the Academy who will help you to register.
  • If you want your child to have free, healthy meals at lunchtime that's great - they will get the free meal (saving you more than £350 per year), extra benefits and the academy gets £900 extra.
  • If you don't want your child to have the school meals they can continue as normal - as long as you qualify and are registered, the school still gets £900 extra.
No one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

Please talk to Hounslow Local Authority about registering your child today. Should you need help, please contact the academy.

CATERLINK

The academy strives to be “outstanding in every respect” and the new provision of high-quality food is just one aspect of this drive. Caterlink’s Fresh Food Policy surpasses the new Government Guidelines set by the School Food Trust. 90% of all ingredients used are fresh to ensure students have the opportunity to get a significant proportion of their daily nutritional intake from their School Meal.

KINGSLEY CATERING – The Cashless System & Biometrics

Just a reminder that all new students and staff will be registered by biometric measurement and photograph for catering purposes only. The biometric measurement involves the measurement of a number of points on a finger. This information is then converted and stored as a unique number. Parents, staff and students can rest assured that the fingerprint information held cannot be re-converted back into an image of the fingerprint, nor can it be used by any other source for identification purposes. At the heart of the 'cashless' system is a software programme which recognises each individual student, holds individual cash balances and records expenditure and cash received. It also records where and when money is spent and on what food and most importantly, ensures the utmost safety as no cash is being carried thus minimising any risk of loss or theft….
