Parent Pay is an online school payment system where parents can book their child's school dinners, pay for trips, pay for uniform and add funds to their account.
All new starters will be given a log in to access Parent Pay once their child has been admitted onto the school roll, this will give clear instructions on how to activate your account.
Children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals and will not need to pay for their school meals but will need to have funds on the account to pay for other activities that take place. Children who are also Free School Meals will not need to pay for school dinners but will also need funds on their account for other activities. Parents are responsible for booking in their child's dinners whether they pay or not.
School dinners cost £2.10 per meal.
Please note: if you do have to pay for your child's meal, please ensure that payment is made within 2 hours of booking it, or the meal booking will automatically be cancelled by the system. To avoid this happening, please try to keep some funds on their account.
If your child is ill or will be absent from school, please cancel your child's meal before 9am on the morning the meal is booked for otherwise a charge may occur.
All school dinners are provided by Chartwells.
