How to pay for school meals 

We ask that payment is made our online payment system ‘School Gateway’.

Schoolgateway Login

If you have not already registered for online payments and app messages please either:

  • download the Schoolgateway app from your app store onto either your Android smart phone or iphone. This will enable the school to send you text messages for free.
  • You can also make payments online by visiting and click on ‘New User’.


You will receive a text message with a PIN number. Use this PIN to log into the School Gateway. If you have any problems registering or making payment please contact the school – we will be happy to help you. The school gateway will give you details of meals taken and payment made including what you currently owe/how much credit you have.


Only if you are unable to make payment via Schoolgateway you can pay by cash (correct money please) or by cheque (payee ‘Herts Catering Ltd’). Please put your payment in an envelope with your child’s name, class amount enclosed and ‘Dinner Money’ clearly written on the front of the envelope and hand this into the school office or to your child’s teacher.

What to do if you want to change your child’s meal pattern.

If you wish to change your child’s meal pattern i.e. home packed lunch to school meal, or vice versa we require half terms notice in writing (a form is available from the School Office). You can also send us an email but please if you would like to change to school meals please confirm whether your child has any dietary requirements or food allergies. 

If your child has a food allergy we will arrange for a meeting with Herts Catering to devise an appropriate menu for your child. This must happen prior to school meals being taken.
