School Meal's

School Meal's cost £2.45 per day and £12.25 per week.  

All dinners need to be paid for using Parent Pay.  Please visit www.parentpay.com to log in to your child's account.  If you are having difficulties logging in, or need a reminder of your account details, please come to the School Office.  It is important to keep your child's account in credit if you would like them to have a school dinner. 

Parents will be contacted by the school for debts of £4.90 or more, the expectation is that parents top up the account as soon as possible.  Relish reserve the right to give no further meals where debts are not cleared so children may be required to bring a packed lunch. 

If your account is in arears and you are experiencing financial difficulty please contact the school for support.

In order to guarantee your child’s lunch, payment will need to be made by 10am. There is a facility on your ParentPay account to set a free, automatic email reminder if your balance falls below a certain level. To set this up, sign into your ParentPay account, select ‘Communication’, then ‘Alert Settings’. You can choose the amount at which you would like to be reminded to top up your account. If you would like any help with setting this up, please speak to a member of the Finance Team.  

Please Note: - parents will be charged for meals if they do not cancel any unwanted meals before 9am.
