Schools Dinners

29/08/17

During the summer holidays our new catering company, Pabulum, sent letters to parents of the new Yrs 1-6 regarding booking and paying for school dinners as follows:

Yrs 1 & 2: Your child is still entitled to receive a universal free school meal, however they do need to be booked using the ParentPay system so that our chef knows how many meals to prepare each day.

Yr 3: Your child is no longer entitled to receive a universal free school meal. If your child would like a school dinner they must be paid for, unless you make an application for and are entitled to means tested free school meals. To check eligibility please go to www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals. All meals, whether paid for or free, must be booked using the ParentPay system so that our chef knows how many meals to prepare each day.

Yrs 4-6: You should continue to pay for your child's school dinner using ParentPay, unless you are entitled to means tested free school meals. To check eligibility please go to www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals. All meals, whether paid for or free, must be booked using the ParentPay system so that our chef knows how many meals to prepare each day.

If you are unable to make payments online please ask the school office to order a PayPoint card which will allow you to top up your ParentPay account for school meals at any local shop displaying the PayPoint logo.

School meals cost £2.30 per day, and so a week's worth of meals will be £11.50.

Your letter from Pabulum enclosed your username and password for logging in to the ParentPay website. https://www.parentpay.com/

If you have any questions relating to school lunches or setting up your account please call Sharon Martin at Pabulum Catering on 01252 360569.

New Year R parents: You will be receiving your login details from Pabulum shortly.
