School Meals

The Horsforth Catering Team provides healthy, well balanced meals at break and lunch.

Menus run on a 3 week cycle and are designed to give students a healthy, varied meal choice each day. Fat and sugar content are monitored and desserts (such as cookies) can only be sold at lunchtime if a sandwich/meal is purchased.

All of our menus have coded labels to communicate allergens.

Here is the current 3 week menu cycle:

How to Pay for Food

Horsforth School operates a cashless payment system. When students join the school they are allocated a catering card and access codes which parents/carers use to set up an account with ParentPay, our online cashless school payment system.

Catering cards can be topped up with money either online via ParentPay or by using the cash revaluation machines located outside the main diners. Please note that online payments may take a few hours to register on cards so please bear this in mind if you are making online top up payments during the school day.

Insufficient Funds on Lunch Card

Whilst we do our best to discourage the use of overdrafts our students’ well-being is our priority. Therefore we operate a lending system at lunchtime only. Till operators will allow students to purchase a main meal and a small bottle of water as long as their account is not already overdrawn to a maximum of £5.00.

You will be notified by email each week if your account is overdrawn. Balances can be checked using ParentPay.

Free School Meals

If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, they will have a £3.00 daily allowance for food/drinks to spend at lunchtime only in the main diner outlets (not vending machines). Any unused funds will be removed each day after 2pm.

Account Spending Limits

All our students have a daily spending cap of £6.00. However this can be lowered at parents’ request by emailing finance@horsforthschool.org

Replacement Catering Card

All students receive a catering card free of charge when they join Horsforth School. However if this is lost or damaged a replacement card will incur a £5.00 charge.

Replacement cards are issued by the Finance Office before or after school.

Forgetten Catering Card

Students who come to school without a catering card will be given one opportunity in a half term to borrow a red lunch card to use in the Best of British Diner.

Students should see Dr Bell at lunchtime on the tennis court to borrow a red lunch card which will permit them to buy one lunch for that day. Parents/carers will know this has occurred by a ‘Lunch Card Used’ stamp in their child’s planner.
