From Wednesday 2nd September, school will no longer be accepting cash payments for school meals. School has now purchased an ‘add-on’ to our schoolcomms app that allows parents to pay for school meals.
School meals will remain the same price of £1.95 per child per day and payment is required prior to the meal being taken. You can, if you wish, pay for multiple meals in advance similar to the previous cash payments that many parents chose to make.
The system will be live on Tuesday 1st September and the only exceptions are if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 where they will receive a free meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme and any child in Key Stage 2 that is eligible for free school meals.
The new system is purely for paying for school meals and the dinner register will still be taken in class every morning so your child can tell their teacher whether they require a school meal or packed lunch.
