School Dinners & Parent Pay


School Dinners


The cost of school dinners from September will be £11.00 per week. The children are
offered a "choice menu".


The cost from 30th October 2018 - 21st December 2018 will be £85.80.



If you think your child may be entitled to a free school meal, please talk to Mrs.
Kukalowicz-Booth in the office, she will help you.

Children may bring a packed lunch. We advise that this contains only one "treat", (for
example a typical lunch box might contain a chocolate biscuit or a packet of crisps,
but not both). Please do not allow children to bring fizzy drinks (these spill easily and
make a mess as well as being full of sugar), or breakable containers.



In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from school we are asking parents and carers to use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money.  This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay.

How else can we use Parent Pay?

Since 2nd April 2015, we have been using Parent Pay as a way that we communicate with you instead of sending text messages. We use this service for messages and reminders, not to replace the letters we send.


In order for this to happen we need you to check the information we hold is correct.  The text message will only go to the first contact detailed on our data information sheet if there is a mobile phone number listed.  Unless we hear from you, we will assume the numbers we have listed are correct. 


If you have recently changed or upgraded your mobile phone, please ensure we have you new number.


Should you have any questions or queries please do not hesistate to contact us.
