PART 3: Ordering Meals

Menus will be available for the full term ahead, and you are free to order meals for a week or the entire term at a time, however, please note the deadline for meal orders for the following week will be each Monday at midnight. After this deadline, the menus for that week are deleted – you will be unable to order meals for that period.

To order meals, enter the week/s menu, for which you would like to place your order and select your meals from the drop-down box. If you do not require a meal on a specific day, please select ‘no meal required’. Once your selections are complete, choose your child’s name, then select ‘add to basket’.

When ordering meals for more than one child, repeat this process, selecting the name of your child with each order. It is essential to ensure a child’s name is selected on every order placed. 

To finalise your order, select ‘View Cart’ shown at the top of the page, check the details of the order and select ‘Check Out’. 

Paid Meals

If you are processing an order as a paying parent, please directly proceed to make your payment via ‘PayPal’. You do not require a PayPal account to use this service; however, you will have the option to log in to an existing account or set one up if needed for future use. To complete the process, please select ‘Submit Order’ and make a payment using your existing account or credit/debit card details. 

FSM’s/UIFSM’s

If you are ordering free meals, please select ‘Free’ on the payment page, followed by ‘Submit Order’ to complete. 

NB – Where applicable, you must order and check out paid meals and free meals separately from the relevant menus. Any free orders placed for a child who is not entitled to a free school meal will not be processed.
