Catering

Our school meals are provided by Chartwells. 

For many years, Chartwells have focussed on helping those in education to build strong bodies, sharp minds and lead long, healthy lives.  

Children enjoy a nutritious menu that is carefully planned to meet their dietary requirements. Throughout the year, children also enjoy different theme days and the Christmas Dinner is always a firm favourite for both staff and children! 

School dinners are free for all children in Reception, Year one and Year two.  Some families in years three to six qualify for free school meals otherwise the cost is £2.20 per day. 

To see if you are eligible for free school meals you can check here 

If you would like your child to try a school dinner please speak to the Academy office. 

Parent Pay 

Our online payment service. 

We’re pleased to announce that we are a cashless school. This means that all payments for any items are made through Parent pay. You can pay online using your credit or debit card either online or via an app for your phone. There is also the ability to link siblings not only at Willows but also at a different school (if they use ParentPay).
