We are now a cashless school.  Payments for trips/activities/school meals etc. that your child will be involved with during their school years will be made available for you to pay online.  Cash will not be accepted, and for safety and security reasons you should not send cash into school with your child. 

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 schoolgateway.com 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.

If you are unable to make payments via the School Gateway, please contact our Finance Officer, Mrs Lofts

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 please pop into the School Office or send an email to mailto:admin@cranborne.herts.sch.uk

We can usually make this change within a few days.  Please ensure that you do inform the School Office of your request to change to avoid you being charged for meals your child has not had. 

If your child has a food allergy please come to the School Office and we will provide you with an application form which will need to be received and reviewed by Hertfordshire Catering before your child is able to start  commences having school meals.
