This is an inspiring book which conveys a teenager's anger at the lack of action on climate change in an articulate and passionate way. It's also an intimate account of how moments in nature can help him manage his autism. Above all, it's about his love for wildlife. https://t.co/xgl5ig2MbL

Had a truly lovely (it exhausting!) day doing one to one sessions with Y10 yesterday. Was afraid this resource would be a bit vague to start off with, but it ended up being a great way to talk about their whole approach to English, exams, studying, specific topics, and so on. https://t.co/fR3tXHt8OV

School Lunches

The school’s canteen is open daily before school and at break time and lunchtime. We aim to provide a happy and healthy environment where the children can meet with their friends whilst enjoying a delicious and nutritionally balanced meal.

The school has a focus on healthy Living and we actively promote and encourage healthy eating both in and outside of school.

Groups of students are involved in testing the new healthy meal and snack options before we commit to adding them to the menu so that any new items already have the student seal of approval.

Opening times

Breakfast:

7.30-8.40am

Break:

10.55-11.15am

Lunch:

1.15-1.50pm

Sixth Form students can come to the canteen and purchase items anytime throughout the school day.

Cost

The main meal of the day is £2.40, which includes a dessert/or fruit and is nutritionally balanced.  There are also a wide range of reasonably priced healthy choices including salads, jacket potatoes, paninis, sandwiches, wraps with salad, noodle and pasta dishes and fresh fruit. Bottled water and chilled tap water (via dispenser) are available along with a small selection of soft drinks which are all school compliant.

Details of eligibility and the application process for free school meals are obtainable from the school office. Or via application can be made online

Hertfordshire County Council free school meals

Payment

The canteen operates using biometric technology.  There are cash loaders outside of the canteen which allow students to check the balances on their account.  (Cash loaders are used to credit accounts before reaching the tills.) 

This system takes the measurements of one finger and converts these measurements into a template (a string of numbers), which is then encrypted.  The template is used to permit students and staff access to the school’s catering (and library) services by placing their finger on a scanner at the point of sale or service.

To comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, parental consent is always sought for each student before implementation and processing.

RBA remains fully compliant with the Data Protection Act and with the guidance given by the Information Commissioner’s Office regarding the use of biometric data.
