Parents and Pre-order

Parents & Preorder

Parenting involves a lot of planning and organisation, and parents more than anyone appreciate ways to reduce hassle and save time. Our cashless pre-order system is quite simply the fastest way to pay for your school meals and your level of involvement is up to you.

Direct Debit is great. With other payment systems parents have to log in regularly and top up a pre-paid balance. This can cause issues in the school if the parent forgets to top up. 

For our direct debit option all you need to do is give your email address to the school office to get a Live Kitchen account. You will receive an email from us containing your login details and a link to our website.

If you have any children who are not entitled to free meals, you can pay for their meals at the end of each month by direct debit. It is collected in arrears and we always let you know what we are collecting two weeks in advance. There is a link on our site (once you are logged in) and signup is instant.
