School Lunch

School meals at Outwood Academy Shafton are managed by our in-house catering team who provide a varied menu which changes on a regular basis. Students are offered a selection of locally sourced food and drink including full home cooked meals, freshly made sandwiches and desserts. We aim to provide a varied experience using healthy, freshly made meals to enable them to reach their full potential with their day-to-day learning at school.

We run a cashless catering system at Outwood Academy Shafton. Each student has an account which parents can access online to credit with funds; purchases are made by students from this account. Parents can also view any purchases made! For those parents without internet access, cash or cheques can be brought in to school and students can manually add these to their account.

A number of students may be eligible for free school meals. If you think this may apply to you please contact Barnsley Council by phoning 01226 787787 or accessing the Barnsley Council website. If a student is entitled to free school meals their account is automatically credited each day with sufficient funds to purchase a main meal of the day, a pudding and a drink.
