Children must choose their lunch option for the whole week.
The infants and juniors have a set meal each day, presently costing £10 per week (£2.00 per day). Roding operates a cashless system for the payment of school dinners. Money can be credited to your child's account electronically via the ParentPay
website (instant) or via a Paypoint in local shops (takes up to 72 hrs to show on account). Parents should always ensure there are sufficient funds on their child's account at the start of the week. Parents must also decide whether or not their child should have school dinners for the whole week or not at all. We do not allow swapping between school dinners and packed lunch.
Meals will not be provided for children with insufficient funds.
Phone calls will not be made to parents to remind them to top up their ParentPay accounts. Parents can set up SMS reminders via the ParentPay
website. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure funds are visible by 10.30 am. If you have made a payment later than the timescale outlined you will need to show proof of payment - either forward the confirmation email to email@example.com for internet payments or bring the receipt into the office for paypoint payments.
