School Meals

Harrison Catering provides a catering service before school, between 8.00 and 8.30 a.m., at break-time and at lunch-time. The company use fresh ingredients in all their menus and seek to provide a healthy selection of food to meet a wide variety of preferences and to reflect the diverse ethnic community at La Sainte Union.  Once you are registered with Parent Pay (see below) you will be able to see what your daughter eats at school. Individual items are shown for food purchased at breakfast and breaktime and ‘main meal’ will register if she purchases a lunch.

Payment for Meals


The school has updated its advice to parents who are using the cashless payment system ParentPay regarding topping up the cashless catering account or paying for school trips.

As of September 2016, the minimum amount you can pay into your ParentPay account each time you top-up is £12.00. The minimum amount of available credit balance allowed on the ParentPay system is £10.00. You must maintain a positive in credit balance. This means you are encouraged to credit the account with as many weeks payments as you can. Pupils are prevented from overspending with a daily limit of £4.00.

Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will have their allowance entered into the system automatically by the school.  The free school meal allowance is only permitted to be used for a two-course lunch.  If your daughter wishes to buy items for breakfast, break or lunch that are not part of the two-course meal (such as fruit juice), then she can only do so if there is additional money provided by parents for these options.

There is no ‘overdraft facility’ on this payment system which means if a student arrives at the tills without the necessary funds to pay for their food choices they will not be allowed to take the food.

Please click on the link here for information regarding your Parent pay account. If you have any problems in relation to payments please contact Parent Pay via their website initially ( If you continue to have problems, please email Mr H. Rajgor at or telephone the school (0207 428 4600).
