All food and drink must be consumed in the dining hall.

Water may be permitted in traditional teaching rooms (not in the library, computer rooms or science labs).  A water bottle is provided for all students.

Chewing gum, energy or fizzy drinks are not permitted anywhere on the Academy grounds.

Payments - How do I pay for the food my child has in school?

  • Manor Croft use an online payment facility called Parent Pay.
  • Each child is allocated a Parent Pay account when they join the school.
  • Parents will be provided instructions of how to activate the account for their child.
  • Once the account is activated then payments for school meals and other costs in school are to be paid via this system. Payments can be made through Parent Pay by a credit or debit card.
  • Manor Croft use a biometric payment facility.
  • On the first day, students will have their thumb print scanned which will link direct to their Parent Pay account.
  • Each time a student purchases food in school they will be required to scan their thumb and the appropriate payment will then be deducted from their account.
  • It is a parent’s responsibility to ensure that there is money credited to their child’s Parent Pay account at all times to cover the cost of school meals being taken.
