Lunch Accounts

School Lunch/Snack System
School lunch costs £2.80 and must be paid for in ADVANCE.  If your account has a negative balance, you will not be able to order school meals on the app. It is your responsibility to ensure your child/children have a credit balance or a packed lunch from home.

The best way to pay for school lunch/snack is online via the School Gateway system – see instructions below. The Gateway will also give you an up to date balance.

Please top up your child’s account online at the weekend for the week.

Online Payments Instructions
1. Go to

2. When you visit the School Gateway website for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter your email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school

3. The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and your account will be activated for you.

As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, you’ll be able to pay money to the school online rather than send cash or cheques. If you’ve recently changed your email address or mobile telephone number, please let us know so we can update our records.
