Lunchtime

The school dining hall is open at break and lunchtime, and sells a range of hot meals as well as filled rolls and snacks. Those on free meals are currently allowed to spend up to £2.50, and this is ample to buy a main meal of the day with dessert. We operate a cashless card system, with a default daily spend limit of £3.50 set to each account. If you would like to decrease or increase your child’s spend limit, please contact canteen@astreastivo.org. We also provide vending machines that take cash, and offer a variety of food and drinks.
