Cowes Enterprise College offers a large, open-plan canteen area with additional seating available in our sheltered ‘inside-outside’ area.

The canteen at Cowes Enterprise College is served by education catering specialists, Caterlink. Healthy eating is at the very heart of Caterlink’s approach to food. They wholeheartedly encourage balanced diets and their policy of purchasing a range of seasonal produce from local and regional suppliers enables them to deliver exceptional value.

The canteen is open for breakfast items from 7.45am, offers a selection of snacks and drinks at break time and a range of hot meals, sandwiches, soups and salads at lunch time.

Themed weeks, ‘destination days’ and monthly ‘food heroes’ add excitement and interest to Caterlink’s diverse and changing menus.

Cashless Catering

The academy operates a cashless catering system for purchasing items from the canteen. Money can be paid into a student’s account online through Scopay. Students are also able to bring in cash to add to their accounts on site.

Parents are able to check an account’s balance and view purchases on the Scopay website.

If you require an invitation letter to access a Scopay account please contact the main academy reception.

Free School Meals

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
