School Meals

Lunches at Finchingfield Academy are cooked by Great Bardfield Primary School.

THIS SCHOOL IS NUT FREE

(If your child has packed lunches, please ensure that all products included are nut free. Please note that Pesto contains nuts and should not be included in a packed lunch.)

The School lunch price is £2.10 per day (£10.50 per week)

All school meals must be ordered and paid for in advance online. To access ParentPay, please visit www.parentpay.com        

Menus for the following weeks will be shown below on the ParentPay website.

Please remember that the cut off time for ordering meals is 9pm on the Sunday before each week commences.

Meals cannot be ordered after this time online or in the school office and should you miss the deadline then you will need to provide your child with a packed lunch. If they are in years 3, 4, 5 or 6, prepayment is compulsory. This is clearly explained during the booking process. If you have not paid within 2 hours of booking your child’s meals, or there is insufficient credit balance in your ParentPay account, the booking will be cancelled.

In the event that your child is absent from school, and we are informed before 9.30am, your order will be cancelled by the school office and you will not be charged for the meal.

Each meal taken will be debited from your child’s ParentPay account on the day of provision.

Year R, 1 and 2 pupils and those eligible for free school meals also need to pre-select their meal choices online. If a meal is not pre-ordered by the cut off time you will need to contact the school office in order for an ’emergency meal’ to be ordered.
