Cafe & Lunchtime

While your son or daughter is at Calthorpe Park we hope they will enjoy using our School Café at break time and for lunch. I am sure you will agree that it is important that children eat a nutritional meal during the day. Whether they bring in a packed lunch or buy food from the Café, we expect them to be properly “fueled up” ready for learning later in the day. Breakfasts and morning break Café services are available too.

A “main meal”, including a small bottle of water, is £2.30. This is great value bearing in mind the nutritional content and quality of ingredients which is all part of the Pabulum promise.

We use a pre-pay cashless system which includes a biometric (thumb recognition) procedure at the tills.  The Café staff do not accept cash.

Topups on Café Accounts are done online by using ParentPay. With ParentPay parents are able to see what their child is eating and how much they are spending. Using the “Café” button in EduLink parents and students can see their current balance and the last few purchases.

We offer an “overspend” opportunity for the occasional student who gets in to difficulty with their account where has not been topped up in time. In this instance the student should go to the Registry Office and ask for permission to go overspent.
