Please note that from Monday 4th November, Chartwells will be moving to the on-line cashless ‘ParentPay’ system and you will no longer be able to pay in school. ParentPay activation code letters will be sent home with your child at the end of October. Please make sure you register online at www.parentpay.co.uk. If you do have any problems, you will need to contact ParentPay directly. Please ensure that any outstanding amounts for dinners are cleared by Thursday 24th October so the kitchen can update their records.

As of September 2014, all infant age pupils are entitled to a free school meal.
Dinners must be paid for in advance. There is no credit allowed. If you think you may be eligible for free school meals.
Everyone is welcome to have school meals which are cooked each day on site.
Free milk is available for all children under the age of five in school, funded by the UK government.
In our school, this milk is provided by Cool Milk, the UK’s leading school milk supplier.
When your child turns five, you are able to pay a subsidised rate for your child to continue to receive milk.
If you wish for your child to continue receiving milk from the age of five, simply register with Cool Milk directly via their website (www.coolmilk.com). They will then contact you at the appropriate time to arrange pre-payment.
As you may be aware the NHS fund a daily portion of fruit for all children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.
We would like to extend the scheme and offer fruit to the children in Key Stage 2 for a cost of 10p per day, payable in advance each term. This would provide a portion of fruit each day. The fruit delivered will be the same that is delivered to Key Stage 1; Therefore, there will not be a choice available, just the “Fruit of the Day”. Deliveries normally consist of bananas, apples, pears, carrots, citrus, tomatoes and strawberries/mangetout in the warmer weather.
It is not possible to offer refunds for absences, dislikes or days when deliveries have not been made, e.g. the first day of term. Alternatively, your child can bring in a piece of fruit, in a named container, from home each day.
