A wide range of hot and cold fresh dishes and snacks and salads is available throughout the day along with fresh home baking.

Lunch, although timetabled, is planned to be flexible with students accessing facilities at different times between 12.35pm and 13.35pm.

Similarly, break times are intended to be taken at appropriate times within longer sessions, in line with the flow of learning activities
and mirror the world of work.

The Governors of the UTC take seriously their responsibility to provide the opportunity for students to have a balanced diet. They do this by giving a detailed specification to the caterer and insisting that high quality, low fat meals are on offer with a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables each day.

We can provide your child with a sandwich, piece of fresh fruit or healthy tray bake and a fresh fruit juice drink. There is also the opportunity for your child to ‘pick and mix’ from a variety of other options available to ‘tailor make’ their own packed lunch.

We also offer a hot meal menu’s which follow a 3 week cycle. These meals are nutritionally balanced so you can be assured that your child is receiving a well-balanced, healthy meal at lunchtime.

Sixth Form students are invited to order from our ‘pop-up’ menu which includes gourmet burgers and breakfast boxes, available fresh to order every day. Students interested in doing so must place their order before 10am in the refectory ready for collection at lunchtime.

Students may also bring a packed lunch if preferred. We can offer guidance on what should be included. We ask that no fizzy drinks or sweets be provided.

Paying for Food
The UTC uses a cashless catering system.
The value of any free school meal allowance will be loaded daily on to the students’ ID card.
The UTC provides cash loader machines to allow students to load cash on to their ID cards.

Lunch Time Arrangements
No students are allowed off the premises without the express permission of a parent or guardian. The student must be going home to his/ her own home and be supervised whilst there.
It is expressly forbidden to use take-aways and eat in the streets in school uniform.
Water is available throughout the day as well as a range of soft drinks, smoothies and milk drinks.

There will be no consumption of any fizzy drinks or sweets at any time.

Breakfast Club
Toast and hot drinks are available as part of our free breakfast club.
