Paying for meals
The academy uses a cashless catering system for food and drink purchases.
Parents and carers will need to only use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money, trips, music lessons etc . This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay. ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments so you may view them whenever you wish.

Free School Meals
Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance.
