Parentpay - Paying for your child’s school meals
The government provides funding to offer universal free school meals to all pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2. Children in these years will be provided with a healthy, hot meal every day.
Once your child reaches year 3, if they are not eligible for free school meals, parents have the choice of sending their child to school with a healthy packed lunch or paying for school dinners.
The cost of school dinners is £2.30 per child per day (£11.50 per week). Payment should be made in advance via Parentpay, which is a secure, online platform which offers parents the freedom to make payments 24/7. Parentpay can also be used to pay for milk, uniform, afterschool care club and breakfast club and school trips.
