School Meals

In April 2022, we launched a new catering service partnering with Cucina. Cucina has significant experience delivering catering services to schools, including several schools in the Richmond borough.  

Mandatory provision – Primary, Year 7 and Year 8 

Part of our unique community feel at St Richard Reynolds is that all our students in the primary school, year 7 and 8 eat a hot lunch together every day.  The menu is varied and always includes multiple options, including vegetarian with food allergies and intolerances catered for.  Studies show that children and young people who eat a hot meal at lunchtime have improved concentration, enhanced attention and learn important social skills from sitting down and eating together.

The cost of a mandatory school meal is £2.65 per day for the High School. Payments for school meals are made via the Online School Shop, which is accessed via the following link:

Tucasi/Scopay Payment System

Our current menus are included below:

Year 7 & Year 8 Menu

Year 9 and above 

For years 9 and above, we have a new “grab and go” service. This will include  a range of options that students will be able to pay for via a cashless catering system.

Students have the option of selecting  a hot main meal, a choice from the StreetVibes street food range or a range of hot and cold deli offers. Additionally, cold items can be purchased at break. In September 2022 we launched a new 6th form cafe provision for hot and cold snacks and sandwiches as well as a bean-to-cup coffee machine

Our current menus are included below and there are various meal deals that students can take advantage of daily including:

Hot meal and dessert for £2.50

“Blue Dot” deal – 4 items for £2.40

Top up payments for school meals for year 9 and above should be made by accessing the new Tucasi / Scopay payments system. Please visit here to register and log in to your account.

6th formers also have the option to pay via bank card.
