Your child's lunch account / Free School Meals

We are asking all families to check their child's lunch money balance on Parent Pay. Please make sure your child has enough money and isn't in debt. 

Did you know - you can also check your child's transactions in the dining rooms?

If you have never used Parent Pay before, please contact us to request your one-time activation codes. 

Could your child be eligible for Free School Meals? You can check at 

The academy also receives additional Pupil Premium funding for children on Free School Meals which we use to find extra resources and staff. 


Are you receiving these messages by SMS? Please download our Parent App. It's called My Ed, saves the school money and lets you message us for free and see useful information about your child.
