Ways To Pay

More and more pupils are choosing our ever-popular College Dinners and the number of children choosing a hot meal is increasing all the time. The following services have been commissioned to make it easier by paying online:

  • We are using "Fastrak" to register the children's dinner choice in the morning. This is an electronic register that children complete when they enter the class in the morning. Please make sure your child has looked at the dinner menu for the day (on our website or on the College boards).

  • Dinners should be paid for in advance.

  • You can pay upfront ONLINE using Parent Mail from Term 2 in 2019. You can use it for all weekly dinner payments (the current price is £11.50 per child per week in advance.) You can also pay by debit or credit card, but the College gets an additional charge if you do. You can also choose to pay weekly in cash upfront.

  • We now have a very clear and concise Dinner Money Policy (see the link) which has been passed by our Academy Board Chairperson. This sets out the expectations for payment clearly.

  • Remember: Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils still have the Universal Free School Meal but they do not get additional funding from Pupil Premium if you do not apply for Free School Meal eligibility. Don't forget, Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 either have to pay for their meal in advance or have valid Free School Meals status.
