Live Kitchen - 15th April 2013
On Monday 15th April we will be changing the way children order school meals. We will be using a system call ‘Live Kitchen’, a computerised ordering and payment system which ensures children get the meals they want and to provide a cashless system payment for parents. You will be able to go online and order meals from home, view recipes and check ingredient information. Meals can be ordered at home or on the classroom interactive white board each day. Parents will also have the option to pay by Direct Debit. You will receive further information about ‘Live Kitchen’ tonight. If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact us.
