School Lunches

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are supplying school dinners for Harefield Primary School and are determined to offer you and your child an excellent service, ensuring every child enjoys their meal and has the energy to study and learn in the afternoon. The cost of a school dinner will be £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week).

SchoolGrid Account  -

If you would like your child to have school meals, you will need a SchoolGrid account. Please provide the school office with your email address to activate an account. You will then receive an email from SchoolGrid, our software providers, with all of your necessary login details. By accessing SchoolGrid online you will be able to pre order meals, view recipes, allergens, ingredients and make payments.

Allergies If you are having difficulties ticking the allergen information you need, please contact Customer Care and we will happily make arrangements to accommodate your child’s individual needs.


Direct Debit - This will be collected from your account on or around the 1st or the 15th of each month and will work in arrears for the meals you have taken the month before. To set this up please access your SchoolGrid account - [account] - [direct debit] You will receive a statement two weeks before a payment is due stating the amount and the date the payment will be taken. We can not set up Direct Debits over the phone. If you prefer not to pay by Direct debit we ask that all accounts are kept in credit.
