How the canteen works...

The School has excellent on-site catering facilities whereby pupils can purchase breakfast before school (8.30am-8.50am), at mid-morning break (11am-11.20am) and during lunch break (1.20pm-2.00pm).

Every student is set up with an individual account. Money can be added to your child’s account on-line via Schoolcomms (our on-line payment system) or cash can be added at one of three terminals/re-valuation units located in the school canteen.  Access to your child’s account is via a biometric system (fingerprint recognition). A letter will be sent to all parents/carers seeking agreement to participate and at the beginning of the academic year, the school will organise for an account to be set via fingerprint recognition. Gel pads are located at till points and recognise a child’s unique fingerprint and calls up their unique account, these are cleaned by Chartwell’s staff on a regular basis.     

Schoolcomms enables parents and carers to pay on-line any time 24/7 and reduces the amount of cash being carried around school, as well as saving the school and Catering Partner time and money on administration.

Payments can be made by downloading a payment app. If you have a smartphone, you can download the “School Gateway”
app from the app store (Android and iPhone).

By doing this, both you and the school avoid incurring charges for text messages and future message exchanges will be FREE. It is quick and easy to do. All you need is the e-mail address and mobile phone number that the school holds on record for you.

Alternatively, you can visit the website and click on ‘new user’. You will receive a text message with a PIN number to log into School Gateway. If you experience any trouble when logging in, please contact the school on 01633 653112 and we will update your details on SIMS. Details on downloading the app are also available via our school website.


For young people affected by an allergy, intolerance or other medical dietary requirement, it is vitally important that they develop the skills they need to make safe food choices in all environments, whether at home, in school or other out-of-home settings.

At Chartwells, we believe it is important that young people recognise their responsibility to manage their dietary requirements as soon as they are able to. For many pupils, the progression into secondary education provides a welcome opportunity for this development, as they can take greater control of their diet and make their own informed choices about what, when and where to eat.
