Gumley House works in partnership with Innovate to provide exceptional school catering.
We offer supervised cooked and 'grab and go' breakfast from 8am. In addition to the hot meals menu, Innovate also offers various cold foods, alongside jacket potatoes with various fillings, sandwiches and pasta pronto pots during breaks and lunch times.

Payments for School Meals/Cashless Catering
All purchases of food and drink are made via the cashless catering system. Students are issued with a cashless catering card when they join the school (there is a charge of £5 to replace lost or damaged cards). Parents can top up their child’s canteen account using the online Tucasi system. For families who do not have the facility to top up their child’s account online, there is the opportunity to 'top up' their accounts before school while breakfast is being served.
Online payments by credit or debit card for Innovate Services are processed by Cunninghams, and so your bank statement would display ‘Cunninghams’ for payments made for the canteen via Tucasi.

Students will see clearly identifiable posters explaining what to do if they have an allergy or intolerance. Innovate staff can advise students on what items they can purchase using the allergen matrix found at the service point. Innovate staff can also arrange for alternative options to be made available. To ensure the safe management of allergens and to reduce cross contamination risks Innovate teams are all trained in food safety which includes allergens management.
