School Meals (including how to book)

If your child requires have school meals, rather than a packed lunch, please complete the ‘School Meal Booking Form’ each month and return to the school office. These can be found at the bottom of this page. Your child will only be able to take school meals if this form has been returned. Alternatively, if your child will be taking meals on the same day each week for the year please complete a 'Yearly School Meal Booking form' available from the school office.

School Meals In KS2 (years 3-6)
Children within KS2 (Years 3-6) will need to pay for their school meals via our online payment website called ParentPay. We do not take cash or cheques for school meals in the office. All payments must be made through ParentPay. From September 2015, bookings will not be taken unless your account is in credit to cover the cost of your bookings.
 
Parents are allocated a temporary username and password to enable you to set up your ParentPay account. During the activation process you will be guided through changing your username and password to something more memorable; you can merge your accounts if you have more than one child at the school or at another school that uses ParentPay. Payments can be made, via ParentPay, using a credit or debit card.
 
We can set up a Paypoint account to enable you to make cash payments at your local Paypoint store, this will be linked to your ParentPay account. Please let us know if you would prefer to pay by Paypoint.
