At Westfield Nursery & Primary School we encourage all children to have a school prepared meal. Our provider Caterlink provide a variety of meals which the children and staff really enjoy.
As we have a new meals provider we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay. You will need an activation username and password to do this, which you can obtain from the office.
Already have a ParentPay account?
If you already have a ParentPay account, with another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page.
New to ParentPay?
You have a secure online account ready to be activated, please see the office for your activation username and password. You will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure as your Username and Password for future logins.
If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page.
Please visit ParentPay and activate your account via the Account login area on the home page of the site.
ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you need assistance.
We have a fixed cost of £1.90 per day for our school meals. A nursery child's meal is charged at £1.20 per day.
Free School Meals & Uniform grant
We have a number of parents who already claim Free School Meals for their child in one of our classes. This can be confusing because ALL children in Reception to Year 2 get Universal Free School Meals, but not all children are entitled to the uniform grant.
If you are out of work or in a low paid job you may be entitled to the uniform grant which runs alongside the Free School Meals, as a school it helps us if people who are entitled to claim do claim as a lot of statistics are based around these figures, you may also benefit from receiving the Uniform Grant for your child. If you have older children who receive Free School Meals you should be entitled to receive a uniform grant for the younger children as well but you will need to add them onto your claim.
