Prescription items from your doctor or hospital can be sent into school in the correctly- marked packaging and can be administered according to the instructions on the packet.

Cashless Catering We have five star rated canteen facilities at both Imberhorne sites and they are extremely popular with our students. Students may also choose to bring a packed lunch, some choose a combination of both. Our canteens operate a cashless catering system. Each student has a canteen account which parents/ Pre order your meals carers top up with money either online, using a credit or debit card, or at a local convenience store using cash via the PayPoint network. Canteen purchases made by your son/daughter are then deducted from this account. Students are issued an ID Card on the first day of term in September - this card gives them access to their cashless catering account and should be presented when they reach the canteen till. Any student wishing to purchase food in our canteen needs to have sufficient credit on their account to cover the purchase. We believe this cashless system offers a number of benefits, including: To help reduce wastage, and ensure • Faster canteen service – it takes less time at the till there is sufficient food available, to process a cashless transaction we have introduced a pre-ordering system for the lunch time main hot • Ensuring dinner money is spent in the school meal of the day.
