Our school meals are provided by Metrofresh, which is run by Wigan Local Authority.
School Meals are currently £2.30 a day and must be paid for in advance. This may change in September, prices are determined by Metrofresh (the provider of our school meals).
Children in reception, year 1 and year 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM). This is different than Free School Meal entitlement. If you feel as a parent that your child is eligible for Free School Meals, then please register them with Wigan Local Authority (or whichever Authority you live in), your child will be entitled to additional school benefits (tailored to your child's needs), if they are entitled to Free School Meals and you register them. If you think your child is eligible for Free School Meals, please click on the link further down this page, which will give you more information.
School meals are tracked and recorded on a system called School Grid. This will allow parents to electronically order their child's lunch in advance or the children can order them themselves in the classroom each morning. A log-in is needed to access School Grid and this can be received by requesting it from the school office and supplying the school office with, the parents' name, the parents' email and the children you wish this account to be linked to.
Parents can pay for these meals online on the School Grid system (not Eduspot), they can pay either by direct debit or debit / credit card. Payment can also be made in cash or cheque, (payable to St Michael's), by sending into school, with your child, in an envelope with your child's name, class and dinner money clearly marked.
When you supply school with the details needed for a log in, parents will receive an email from School Grid which will have a link to their website.
