We have a colour system in place, Red is generally our meat option, Green is our vegetarian option and a blue is our alternative option. It is really important if your child is having a school dinner that you have discussed this with them and they know what colour they would like that day.
When the teacher calls the register each morning they will ask the child which colour meal they would like for that day and if your child is unsure on the options this will hold up the register and eat into your child’s learning experience. Once they have requested their meal choice each morning this then goes to the kitchen so they can prepare and cook the correct number of meals, if your child says red and really wanted blue, we will not always have the facility for them to change their mind. We run the kitchen economically alongside our curriculum so have put this system in place to reduce the amount of waste we get each day.
The dinner money system within Arbor is a top up system so you can pay money into your account and it will only be taken as and when your child has a dinner. We do expect if your child is having a dinner that there will be money in the account, if for any reason they forget their lunch and need a dinner this is absolutely fine we will then request the payment as an arrears.
The Arbor App facility will allow for both parties to experience a more streamlined, cost-effective, and efficient payment and communication system in a secure and safe environment.
