At Risedale we have a dedicated team, who work hard to produce a wide variety of meals for both students and staff and all of our food is cooked fresh daily.
The school operates a 'cashless system' for purchasing food, this is where students use cash to top up their balance in school by using the Reval Machines available in the dining hall or parents can top-up using 'ParentPay' online. By using the ParentPay facility parents are also able to check their child's balance and see what they have purchased to eat.
We supply a range of healthy drinks and snacks to suit every taste and to give students extra value for money we also offer a wide range of 'Meal-Deals'; these include a daily main meal and a pudding for £2.50 (see Price List). If your child qualifies for a 'Free School Meal' their daily allowance will cover the cost of a two course meal. For further information and to apply for a free school meal please click here to visit North Yorkshire County Council's Free School Meals page.
We aim to meet our students' and staffs' dietary needs, please inform the school of
any allergies or dietary requirements your child may have which can then be
passed onto the school Catering Manager. Please click here to view a list of dishes and their allergen content.
