Online payment

The school has a system for paying online for nursery fees, breakfast and after school clubs, school trips etc.  You will receive a letter with further details.  As an eco-school we aim to reduce the amount of paper that the school distributes and we are increasingly using the website and email to communicate with parents and carers.
