SCHOOL MEALS INFORMATION
Haughton School is now a cashless school. We cannot accept any dinner money sent into school.
Cypad is the system used for Parents/Carers to choose children's meals online. Cypad is accessed from your ParentPay account.
ParentPay is a safe and secure website/app which is used for all school payments - including school lunches. It is user friendly and simple to use!
ParentPay log in details are provided when children start at Haughton School. If you need a copy of your access details at any time, please let us know.
Your ParentPay account need to be activated in order for you to choose meals from the menu. This also needs to be done for children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 who receive government funded meals, as well as those children who are financially entitled to free meals.
We would ask all Parents/Carers whose children usually bring a packed lunch to also activate their ParentPay account - for those odd occasions when packed lunches may be forgotten or you would like to order an ad-hoc meal, e.g. theme days, Christmas lunch day.
School lunches are £2.30 per day.

SPECIAL MENUS / SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
If you have told us that your child needs a differentiated menu for medical reasons or that they have special dietary requirements, this will be added to Cypad and reflected in the available meal options.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I don't have any credit on my account. Will my child still receive a meal?
Cypad will not allow you to order a lunch if there is insufficient funds on your account - it is imperative that you maintain a credit balance at all times.
We understand there may be the odd, unavoidable occasion when you are unable to credit your child's account. Please let us know at the earliest available opportunity if you have a problem.
What will happen if my child is late or I haven't selected a meal?
Don't worry, your child will be able to select their meal from their classroom, or if registration has closed, from the office.
What happens if my child goes home before lunch and doesn't have their meal?
If your child is not marked as having taken a meal, they will not be charged.
Can my child change their mind once they arrive at school?
In exceptional circumstances the Cook can override the choice at service.
FREE / UNIVERSAL SCHOOL MEALS
All children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 are entitled to universal free school meals (government funded). Once your child moves in to Year 3 you will need to start paying for any school meals taken, unless you are financially eligible.
If you think you may be financially eligible for free meals, you can check and apply online here:
