Parent Pay (school meals)
The process for selecting your child’s school meals is done on-line through ParentPay, when your child enrolls in our school you will receive an activation letter, which will give you a username and password to activate your account and order meals for your child. Please be aware that if you have insufficient funds in your account ParentPay will cancel your child’s lunches automatically.
School meals are £2.30 per day and the table above gives you costs throughout the week.
All children from Primary 1 to Primary 3 are entitled to Free School Meals.
If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, application forms are available at the school office. It is important to fill in the forms and return them to Scottish Borders Council as soon as possible, as they normally do not back-date applications and you may be liable to pay any money due. Pupils who received free meals granted by another authority do not automatically qualify and a new application should be made.
Parents/carers should note that it is necessary to submit an application form for free meals before the start of every session.
We hope this clarifies the procedure for school meals. If you need any help or have any questions please contact Mrs June Buchan or the school office on: 01890 750 692.
We expect pupils to stay in school at lunchtimes unless they are going home to have lunch with parents, family or carers. A letter must be sent to gain permission for this (one per term if a child goes home every day, is sufficient). This is to ensure the safety of pupils at all times and the school is aware of pupils’ whereabouts.
