Paying for school meals

At most schools meals are usually paid for at the counter but some schools may have a different arrangement.

Please check with your school directly for information on the scheme they operate.


Some schools are now offering an online system using Parentpay.

This is  a useful and flexible facility, allowing payment to be made at any time using your credit or debit card.

ParentPay removes the need for children to carry money to school and frees their lunchtimes which might otherwise be spent queuing to hand payments in.

ParentPay offers the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that the technology uses the highest internet security available.

Once registered you will be issued with a secure online account with a unique user ID and password. If appropriate, accounts can be merged for 2 or more children.
