Caterlink School Dinners are now provided by a new catering company - Caterlink. All food is cooked from fresh each day. New menus are delicious! After ½ term Caterlink will be taking over the responsibility of managing payments for dinners and also contacting parents for outstanding balances. Therefore, we would appreciate if all dinner money is paid up to ½ term for a smooth transition to the new way of working. Any money already paid in advance will be credited to Caterlink.
Parent Mail We have been using Parentmail for over a year to take online payments for dinners, trips, after and before school clubs. We have 93% of parents/carers using the system and very few still paying cash/cheques in the office. After ½ term the School Office will be cashless. Therefore, we are offering 4 drop-in sessions for parents who need to be set up or are having difficulty using Parentmail.
