We are pleased to let you know that St Clement’s now has a new online payments system, which we would encourage you to use to pay for school meals and other school activities. We hope that you will find paying in this way is much more convenient and from our perspective it will save us time as well as reduce the chances of money being lost.
We are now using a system known as ‘SIMS Agora’ which is very easy-to-use and will offer you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.
You can logon to SIMS Agora at www.payyourschool.co.uk
If you require new login details, please call to the school office and we will be happy to help.
Online Free School Meal Application
Here at school we have a new online free school meal application process which removes the need for renewal. With this system you only have to apply once, no paperwork is needed and you receive an instant response to your child’s eligibility to receive free school meals. Once you have applied and received your response school will receive an email advising us of your child’s eligibility. This removes the need for us to send home application forms and requesting proof of receipt of certain benefits. If there is a change in your circumstances and your child’s eligibility changes both you and school will receive notification of this so both parties know instantly. This will prevent debt occurring as when it is identified to a parent that the eligibility has ended they can immediately choose whether to pay for school meals or send their child with a packed lunch and again if eligibility starts again school will be aware not to charge for meals provided to that child. The process is a simple online application which you can complete at home or we can support you in school to complete and it only ever needs to be completed once.
Everyone can apply and it only takes a few minutes of your time, all you need is your national insurance number and contact details. Your child may be entitled to free school meals of which you are unaware.
