Pay for school meals

There are no set amounts to pay. You can pay, in advance, weekly, monthly or for a full term. You can check your school meals credit balance by contacting your child's school.

By debit card, credit card or PayPal

You will need your child's pupil number, so we can allocate the payment correctly. Please contact your child's school if you do not know this number. You can make a payment for more than one child in a single transaction.

The majority of schools in Bury accept on line payments for school meals:

Some schools will accept cash payments, please check with your child's school. Pupils at high schools can also use cash at a revaluation station found in their schools.
