When joining the school you will be issued with a letter and a code detailing how to set up payments for lunches.  All lunches need to be paid for via ParentPay - cash will not be accepted. Paying for your child’s meals is very important and time-sensitive.  All meals are to be paid for in advance of ordering/consuming, and parents are no longer able to accrue debts.  If you fail to keep advance payments for lunches your child will find he/she cannot book a meal at all.

To help you to manage your payments you can set up an alert on ParentPay to let you know when your balance is running low :

Log-on with your user and password.

On the Home Page, at the top right hand corner of the screen, click on ‘Edit your Profile.

On the left hand side of the screen, find ‘View email Profile Box’ and click on ‘Alert Settings’

Scroll down to Banstead Community Junior School meals and ‘Balance Alert’, and place in ‘Threshold Box’ £6.00 and tick ‘email alert’ (do not tick ‘text alert’ as this will be chargeable to you – email is free).

Click on save at bottom of page. (may take 24hrs to activate).

You may pay weekly, monthly, half-termly, termly – just so long as payments are IN ADVANCE of meals ordered.     

The price of a school meal is  £2.10.

You will see from the menu that children have a choice.  They make their choice in the morning at registration.  They select their name on their class’s interactive whiteboard, then choose vegetarian or main or jacket potato option.  They are then given a green, or red or yellow wrist band, the colour of which relates to the chosen option.  Please let us know if your child is intolerant to rubber/latex.

The beauty of this system is that parents and pupils can refer to the menu and chop and change from packed lunches to school meals on a daily basis.  No need to let us know in advance!
