Attendance, Dinner Money & FSM


As previously notified, we are no longer accepting cash or cheque payments.  This means that, if you have not already done so, it is essential that you activate your ParentPay account as soon as possible.


Dinner money for KS2 Juniors

KS1 infants currently do not have to pay for school dinners.

However, from Year 3 onwards, you must pay unless you are entitled to Free School Meals (ask in school office for more details)

Dinner money is paid online via Parent Pay. If you have any problems activating your account, please contact the school office.

Dinner money is £11.00 per week (£2.20 per day), payable in advance. You can pay monthly or weekly etc. Just top up your account to suit yourself.

If your child just wants a school meal on a Friday it is £2.20 per week.

Unfortunately, if you owe arrears of dinner money, your child will be asked to go on packed lunches until the arrears are paid

Please give the office one week's notice if your child wishes to change meal patterns so we can ensure that you are charged correctly.

Many thanks
