To book school dinners you will first need to go to the above website and register. You will then be sent an email to activate your account, once you have done this you can add your child/ren and begin ordering. Using the system you will be able to see the lunch menu, order/cancel meals and pay for them.

Chartham Primary will be unable to accept any cash payments for school dinners on behalf of CH & Co. all payments for school dinners must be made electronically.


All meals for KS1 pupils (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2) are government funded as Universal Free School Meals and do not require any payment.


Families who receive certain benefits are eligible for Free School Meals for their children throughout their time in school. Registering for means tested Free School Meals could raise an extra £1,320 for your child’s primary school to fund valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities. If you’re not sure whether you qualify for Free Meals, but would like us to check please contact the school office by phone or email.


Please ensure that if you pay for your child's lunch that this is done in advance, either daily, weekly or termly via CH & Co. Education's online payments.
