The new facilities for catering and dining will be one of the biggest improvements to the pupil experience and our school catering team have been hard at work coming up with new menus and a new approach for the new setting.

We are very pleased that we will be the very first school in Scottish Borders which will be able to take advantage of the latest technology in biometrics to ensure that meals and snacks are paid for as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Please see the documents attached below for more info.  Please note completed consent forms are now OVERDUE.  If your youngster has not yet returned this please arrange for them to do so ASAP.  Copies of the consent slip can be collected from the school office.
