Parents/Carers who wish to continue making cash payments may do so using the PayPoint network at local convenience stores. Please ask for a bar code in the office to enable this.

1 day: £2.25
2 days: £4.50
3 days: £6.75
4 days: £9.00
5 days: £11.25
Please note: Should arrears occur you will be notified, usually by text message (with a delivery report), that we will no longer be able to provide your child/(ren) with a hot school meal. You will be asked instead, to provide a packed lunch until the arrears are cleared in full.
We really hope this does not happen, but we can not allow arrears to accrue. You are in complete control of your ParentPay account, you have access to it 24/7, therefore, arrears should not happen. The school is not obliged to provide food; its duty is to provide education. The option of providing food is a service that parent(s)/carer(s) pay for or receive free, if you fulfil the criteria for Free School Meals (please see paragraphs below and apply using the link within them.
Meals are ordered at 09:20am each day. If a child is sent home for any reason after this time, the meal will still need to paid for. Thank you for your understanding with this.
