Online dinner Money Payment 

As a school we are trying extremely hard to minimise cash handling given the risk of transferring COVID 19. If you require your child’s pupil admission number which is required to enable parents/carers to pay online for school meals please contact or phone the office on 01443 432350, where Mrs Camm will be on hand to help. 

As a parent/carer if you require any additional information or have a query please email or ring 01443 680744/578/595/352 and the team will be able to assist you.


Attached below is a brief guidance note which you may find useful if you are new to or unfamiliar with the online payment process.
