Meal payments & ParentMail
All Foundation Class & Key Stage 1 children (Year 1 and Year 2) are able to have school lunches free of charge, as part of a Government initiative which began in 2014.
Key Stage 2 children (Years 3 to 6) are charged as shown above, unless you are eligible for free school meals (see below).
Payments for the following week need to be made through ParentMail in advance.
All new children will receive an email with login details for their ParentMail account in their first week at school – please speak to the school office if you are having problems accessing this.
Free School Meal Eligibilty
This is not the same as having a free meal because your child is in Foundation, Year 1 or Year 2.
If your child is eligible, the school receives an annual payment from the government to help you and your child with some costs at school.
For example, in our school, we are able to offer half price Breakfast & Tea Club to the first eligible child in each family.
There is a very simple form to complete if you think you might be eligible.
Please contact the school to speak to us, in complete confidence, if you would like to find out more.
