Introducing the new meal selection service from 15th February 2020

What are the changes?

  • You will be able to have a choice of menu within your Parent Pay Account. This will mean you can help your child choose a healthy meal that you know they will enjoy.
  • The system will operate in the same way as online shopping services where you put your meals purchased into a basket and then pay as you checkout.
  • Your account must be in credit in order to book a meal.


What will I have to do?

  • You will not have to make any changes to your account. Parent Pay will make the changes for you. Your User ID and password will remain the same.  Your bank details will remain the same.
  • You will have to ensure that your account is in credit to be able to book a meal.
  • Meals must be booked and paid for in advance the week before and no later than 7.30 p.m. on a Sunday.
