On-line payments for school meals

Sir Robert Hitcham’s are pleased to announce that you can now pay for school dinners on-line. This can be done on a weekly or half-termly basis. We are using a system run by SCC, which operates at no cost to the school or families. You will be aware that in order to streamline the dinner money processing we are now only accepting payments by any means on a Monday. (Unless your child is absent)
You should allow 2 days for processing, and please note we will need notification of the payment on a Monday, so if you are paying weekly, you will need to make the online payment by the previous Friday.
Payment needs to be for a minimum of 5 meals, but those 5 meals can be spread over any time period.  The system is NOT able to process payments in arrears; if necessary these should be made by cash or cheque.
Credits will still be carried forward, should your child be ill, or change their minds about the days they have chosen.
Once you have completed payment you will receive a confirmation email from SCC, who will also notify us with details of the payment.
We hope that this system will reduce processing time in the office, and provide a more convenient method of payment for parents. This is a new venture for us, and we hope that you will bear with us during the introductory period. Please contact the office for more information.
