From September 2023, we will operate one lunch time, as well as one morning break. Students can eat from the canteen at either breaktime, or may choose to bring a packed lunch.
Food available includes a choice of hot meals each day (including a vegetarian option), a pasta bar, salads and sandwiches, as well as drinks and snacks.
Since April 2023, our catering supplier has been Dolce. The current/new menu can be seen below., as well as the current price list of items.
A well-nourished child who starts the day with breakfast is more likely to be at school, a better learner, and willing to participate in the classroom.
Free breakfast is provided to all students from 8.00-8.35am in daily in the canteen.
Here at All Saints we use ParentPay. It is simple, safe, convenient and means that your child does not need to carry cash into school. ParentPay is an online payment system that allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, trips and activities. You simply top-up your ParentPay account online by debit or credit card.
Your ParentPay balance can be used immediately to pay for any of your children’s items at school. Once you have started at All Saints you will receive a letter from school containing activation details and instructions on how to log in.
Once you are up and running then you will be able to view your balance and top up online with your credit or debit card. Our systems are biometric and your child will then use their fingerprint to pay for their lunch in school. This biometric information will only be used by the school for the purpose of administration of the cashless catering
In signing the biometric consent box, you are authorising the school to use your child’s biometric information for this purpose until he/she either leaves the school or ceases to use the system. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, this must be done in writing and sent to the school.
Once your child ceases to use the biometric recognition system, his/her biometric information will be securely deleted.

Free School Meals
Plymouth City Council has developed an online Free School Meals form for parents and carers to apply for free school meals in Plymouth. The benefit of the online application is that you can apply in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you. If you are unsure if you are eligible, it is an easy way to check without a face to face conversation.
Please remember to apply if you think that you might be eligible, even if you do not wish to receive the free meals, as it enables the school to claim extra funding to support our pupils. The online form is more secure than the paper forms, as everything is done online. You can access the Free School Meals web page by using the following link:- https://www.plymouth.gov.uk/free-school-meals-0 To access the application, you can apply directly here
You can also download a paper copy to either pass to school or a copy can be obtained from Reception at All Saints Academy.
