School meals are £2.00 per day, paid in advance.  It is preferable that all dinner money is paid online (please click here for information on paying online).  Please note that on the 5th February ISS updated their URL address for online payments to https://payment.cypad.net/ISSEducationRedbridge/ Once you have set up an online account you will have full access to your child's dinner account.  Any money sent into school should be sent in the appropriate envelopes which can be obtained from the school office and placed in the ISS post box in the school reception area not sent into the class teacher. Cheques should be made payable to The London Borough of Redbridge.  If your child's account goes into arrears more than one day your child will not be able to book a dinner and you will receive a phonecall from the school office with a request to bring in a packed lunch or to make an immediate payment. Once your account is in credit the system will allow a dinner to be booked.

Free School Meals Eligibility criteria

All Early Years and KS1 children receive Universal Free School Meals, but you may be eligible for Pupil Premium Free School Meals which could be of benefit to you for a number of other resources ie subsidised Music Lessons etc. We would ask that you take a look at the eligibility criteria below and if you think you are eligible please make an application even if you are in receipt of Universal Free School Meals.

 

The GOV.UK website explains that a child may be eligible for Pupil Premium free school meals (FSM) if their parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided the parents are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax credit
  • Universal Credit – for those applying on or after 1 April 2018, their household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits they get)

Children may also get FSM if they receive any of these benefits directly, instead of through a parent

 

If you believe your child is eligible for free school meals, please approach the Parent Support Advisor who will be happy to help you with your applicable.
