Catering Academy provide the catering at ICC in the hall at breakfast, break and lunch times. They offer students a wide choice of hot and cold food. We also offer a mobile food unit in the Atrium that caters for hot snacks and drinks during break and lunchtimes.
Breakfast (07:45-08:15): A selection of breakfast cereals, toast, baked beans on toast, bacon/egg rolls, full english breakfast and fruit.
Break (10:55-11:15am): A selection of hot and cold hand held snacks are available, from sandwiches, baguettes, fruit and a daily choice from the hot section.
Lunch (13:15-14:55pm): A selection of hot and cold meals are available, sandwiches, baguettes, pasta, jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings, fruit, puddings and a choice from the daily menu.
Our school restaurant and mobile unit is biometric so your child's finger print is all that is required to pay for their meals, snacks and drinks.
How does it work
When students start at ICC parents/guardians will be provided with details on how to register to make on-line payments through ParentPay https://www.parentpay.com/ . Students have the option of adding money to their accounts by using the terminal by the mobile unit.
Students will have their finger print taken for identification. When the child places his/her finger on the scanner, the software matches their finger print with the unique digital signature held in the database.
As parents, you will also be able to monitor the amount your child is spending on a daily basis. This ensures all transactions are fast, efficient and personal to the individual student. This also elimates the need for students to carry money around with them.
Students entitled to free school meals
The amount allocated for the free school meal will be entered into the system by the software daily and will be accessible throughout the day.
The system will then allow, on a daily basis, the required cash amount for each individual student to be allotted to their current cash balance. However, any under spend or missed dinner will be identified by the system and will not be added to the next day's balance.
Students can also add extra cash on to his or her balance in the system by using the online facility or at the terminal to enable a greater daily spend on the school dinner than allocated by their free meal allowance. Extra cash added into the system can also be used for break time snacks.
