Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the restriction of movement across site, the process of purchasing a school lunch and/or break time snack, and the items available to purchase, has temporarily changed.

Going forward, you will need to pre-order and pay for your child's school lunch and/or break time snack using your School Gateway account.

Once you have logged in to your account, please head to the 'Lunch Money' section. From there you will be able to top up your child's account, view the menus and pre-order items. Existing balances will be transferred over to the new system. Please note that orders must be placed by 10.00am the previous day and we are unfortunately unable to process any orders on the day.

Orders can be placed up to three weeks in advance. If your child is entitled to free school meals, you will need to place an order for your child, before 10.00am the previous day.

Any free school meal credits will be applied to your account automatically. Any pre-ordered items will be delivered to the relevant zone for your child's year group at break and lunch time.
