The school requests that payment for school meals is made in advance, weekly, half termly or termly. (If there is a reason why this may not be possible, please contact the school office to discuss payment arrangements).

Should your child be absent on a day for which payment for a meal has been made, a credit for the amount will be carried forward to the next week.
Children will not be provided with a school lunch if their meal account is more than a week in arrears. If aparent genuinely forgets to pay in advance, the school may grant a debt allowance of 5 meals.
If the debt is not cleared, parents must either provide a packed lunch or maybe take the child home forlunch. In a case when a debt payment is not received nor a packed lunch provided, the Head teacher will phone the parent to ask them to come to school with the money.
Should any arrears of this nature remain unpaid by the end of the week; no further meals will be alloweduntil full payment is received. No individual payments for meals will be accepted until the arrears have been cleared.
If payment of the debt is not received, the Head of School reserves the right to begin legal proceedingsagainst parents to recover the debt and ask you to attend a meeting to discuss the matter.
