The school provides an online payment system which parents must use to pay for school meals and other school activities. The system is a more convenient way of paying and from the school’s perspective saves time and reduces the chance of money being lost or stolen. The system we use is called ‘SIMS Pay’ which offers parents the flexibility to make online payments whenever they like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Getting started with SIMS Pay online payments:
- Have your child’s unique SIMS Pay activation reference to hand (available from the school office). If you have more than one child in school, each will have their own reference. However, once the accounts have been set up they can be merged.
- Access SIMS Pay via the following link: www.sims-pay.co.uk
- Register for an account using a Microsoft/Google/Facebook/Twitter account. An existing account can be used, otherwise a new account can easily be set up for free.
- Follow the simple online instructions to activate your account and payments can then be made straight away.
Pupils may only have a packed lunch or go home for lunch if permission has been granted following a meeting between the parents/carers and the school. The school has a detailed ‘Packed Lunch Policy’ which must be strictly followed. The school office should be contacted for further details. If Lower School pupils go home for lunch they should be collected from the school office at 12.15pm and not be back on the school premises until 1.05pm. Upper School pupils who go home for lunch should be collected at 12.30pm from the school office and not be back on the school premises until 1.20pm.
A morning breaktime toast facility is available to all pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 at a cost of 20p per day (which can be paid for using cash). Free fruit is also available for all Lower School pupils, including EYFS, during morning break.
