School Dinner Money Payment, Arrangements and Arrears
PLEASE NOTE from January 2020 -
- School dinners to be paid for in advance please, weekly on a Monday. Alternatively you may pay for any multiples of weeks in advance – e.g. half termly or termly. The price remains at £2.40 per meal or £12.00 per week.
- Any credit at the end of the week will be carried forward to the next week unless change is requested).
- There will be times when payment may be overlooked inadvertently or that an ‘emergency’ meal may be required on a one off occasion so a short reminder will be sent out in the first instance. We will however support only 5 outstanding meal payments at most per child. At this point a reminder message will be sent via text message. If payment is not received on the next school day you will be contacted by telephone to provide a packed lunch until the amount outstanding is settled in full. This is in line with many primary schools and will avoid unmanageable arrears accumulating.
- As a parent it is your responsibility to provide your child with a midday meal (unless entitled to free school meals). If you do not wish to pay for a school dinner, then there is the option of sending your child with a packed lunch.
If you think you may be entitled to receive free school meals please contact the School Office.
Thank you to those families who pay regularly and promptly, it is very much appreciated.
