The Service

TKASA Catering is King Alfred’s own Catering Team, providing high quality catering services to students, staff and visitors.

With a 5* Food Hygiene Rating and a reputation for outstanding food and service, you can be assured that we offer excellent value for money.

The Canteen, in B Block, opens at 8.00am serving a range of freshly cooked breakfast foods and hot and cold drinks.

During Break time and Lunchtime the Canteen serves a range of hot and cold food. The SnackShack is also open during Break and Lunch, serving mainly cold foods and a limited range of hot snack foods. Hot and cold drinks are available from both locations.

Payment System

The school operates a cashless till system to help reduce queuing time. Each pupil has an account and money can be paid in on-line by Parent Pay or cash can be paid in via the Revaluation Unit in B Block Foyer.

Pupils can access their account at the till and Revaluation Unit via a biometric print or an 8 digit code.

Parents/Carers can access account information on-line to view account balances and purchases.

Free School Meals

Accounts for pupils in receipt of Free School Meals work in the same way. The FSM allowance is uploaded to pupil accounts each day, and may be used at break time or lunchtime. Additional money can be added, as described above.

For more information about claiming Free School Meals, please contact the school office on 01278 784881.
