Catering and free school meals
Catering from September will be provided by Dene Magna - please see letter.
Children in all classes are able to order their meals on a daily basis. Payment for schools meals must be made in advance via Parentpay (unless your child is entitled to Free or Universal Free School meals). Accounts for paying children must be in credit at all times.
You may be aware that from 13 December, new legislation (the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation 1169/2011) came in to effect which requires food businesses to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged, in for example catering outlets, deli counters, bakeries, sandwich bars and schools. Even though our meals are cooked off-site this still applies to us. All of the staff at Dene Magna kitchen have been allergen trained. Should you wish to see more information regarding the allergen content of the school meals please contact the office.
For packed lunches from home - please be aware we have a "no nut" policy due to allergies in school and also encourage healthy lunches, with no fizzy drinks.
We are now a cashless school and use ParentPay web payment service that lets parents/carers pay online by credit & debit card or in cash at PayPoint stores to schools and school suppliers.
All payments made to the school for such items as trips, school meals, etc must be paid via ParentPay. Please feel free to take a look at the ParentPay website, alternatively, if you have any questions please contact the school office directly or use the contact us facility on this website. ParentPay has the ability to send alerts via email or text to advise when an account has a low balance or when a new trip has been added. Parents/carers can customise their accounts to receive these alerts as a reminder. Thank you for helping Drybrook School in becoming a cashless school.
