“Students that eat a healthy, well balanced diet are better able to concentrate within class and are more likely to be receptive to learning.”
The school canteen is run by Innovate Services Ltd. Innovate offer a varied menu of good nutritious food that students enjoy in keeping with our Healthy Schools status. The menu rotates every six weeks and provides good value. Snacks, drinks and main meals are available every day.
The canteen is open from 8.00am – 8.25am for breakfast, during morning break and lunch break.
All purchases of food and drink are made via the cashless catering system. Students are issued with a cashless catering card when they join the school. (There is a charge of £5 to replace lost or damaged cards).
Payments for School Meals/Cashless Catering
Parents can top up their child’s canteen account using the online Tucasi system. For families who do not have the facility to top up their child’s account online, there are two ‘cash loaders’ situated in the main school hall for students to credit their account.
Online payments by credit or debit card for Innovate Services are processed by Cunninghams, and so your bank statement would display ‘Cunninghams’ for payments made for the canteen via Tucasi.
If you wish to pay by cheque to top up a canteen account, it should be made payable to ‘Innovate Services Ltd’ and can be posted in the box in the school hall. Cheques are usually credited on the day that they are posted.

They have also installed a fridge freezer at St John’s Church in Walton and we will be able to give frozen, home cooked meals to those in real need in addition to their normal foodbank food parcels. These are going to be produced by the River House Barn volunteers in their kitchen and will be in single and large portion sizes.
