How to book additional sessions and lunch club

We use School Comms (School Gateway) for the payment and booking of additional Nursery sessions and lunch club. To book, you must download the School Gateway app which will allow you to book sessions and make payment as required, at a convenient time for you. The system will also allow you to see both past and future sessions which you have booked. For further information, visit our School Comms page or speak to the school office.   If you wish to pay by childcare voucher or via the Government HMRC scheme, please print off and complete one of the above forms and hand into the school office.  We shall book the sessions for you, and once the voucher payment has reached our account, we shall credit your School Gateway account.
