We have our own 'in house' catering team that provide healthy, fun and nutritionally balanced meals for all the children and staff here at Oreston Community Academy. We are a flagship school for the Food For Life partnership, we are 1 of only 18 schools nationally to have achieved their Gold award. The FFLP prides itself on locally sourced, seasonal, organic and freshly prepared food.Through the Food Critics Group we ensure the direct involvement of the children who also volunteer as Waiters and Waitresses at lunchtimes. We also use produce from our own allotment when it is available.
•We believe that we offer very good value for money at the same time as exceeding all the nutritional guidelines. We aim to make lunchtimes fun and interesting as well as interactive and educational.
This is a fun and interactive school meal ordering, cashless payment and dinner register system.
Parents can order their child's meal at home or children can order their lunch in the classroom at registration. When the children come up to get their meal they click their class and name and their option is displayed to the team.
The system is simple and easy to use and provides parents and children with lots of useful information like menus, recipes, previous orders and balances.
