Currently the school meals cost £2.20 a day/£11 per week. Payment for school dinners Must be paid for by each Monday morning. The school cannot receive late or daily payments at all. If payment is not received then we cannot cater for your child’s meal. We are sorry but the school cannot extend credit.

Can we please remind you that ALL meals that require payment need to be pre-paid via ParentMail, cash payments will not be accepted

You do not need to pre-order your child's meal, they can still choose daily, but your account does need to contain enough credit for the meal. The payment per meal is £2.20. All meals taken including those entitled to UIFSM or FSM can be viewed each week within your child's account on ParentMail.

If you have any queries with regard to payment, dietary requirements or any other matters involving catering, then please contact operations Manager Teresa Adonis-Taylor using the contact details below:
