Herbert Strutt Primary is a cashless school.

All payments for school dinners, trips, breakfast club and sports after school clubs can be paid using the ParentPay Website. 

All new pupils will receive an activation letter once they have started school, if you require any help, or require duplicate copies of the letter, please contact the school office. 

ParentPay is a more secure and convenient way to pay for school meals, trips and clubs online.

In school we have stop accepting cash or cheque payments for meals, trips and clubs. The school aims to be a cash-free environment.

Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the PayPoint network at any local convenience store or supermarket offering PayPoint services.

ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.

Every family is issued a secure online account, activated using a unique username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure.

If you have more than one child at our school or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create a single account login for all your children.

Making a payment is straightforward and ParentPay holds a payment history for you to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system.

PayPoint payments are recorded by ParentPay and can be seen by logging into your ParentPay account and viewing your payment history online. 

Please notify the school office if you wish to use the PayPoint facility. A plastic card will be issued to you to make cash payments for school meals at local PayPoint stores.

The first card is free of charge; however, any lost or damaged cards will incur a charge of approx £2.50 each. Payment cards take about two weeks to arrive but we can issue a barcode letter as an interim measure.


School Dinners

At Herbert Strutt Primary School we pride ourselves on serving healthy, nutritional meals. Annie and her team of kitchen staff work hard to make sure everyone is catered for and that the food is served on time.

All pupils in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals.

A pupil meal costs £3.25 per day.  School Meals should be paid for each week for Years 3-6 via the pupil's ParentPay account.

We are a nut free school and cater for a wide range of allergy needs as well as the varying tastes of our children.

In addition, our team of midday supervisors support the children during their lunchtime to ensure everyone has had a good lunch and a happy playtime.


If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals please visit the Derbyshire County Council website for more information and an online application form or download a paper form.  From September 2014 all children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.  However, Parents whose child is entitled to Free School Meals must still apply as below.
