School Meals

How to pay

At Djanogly City Academy, we use a cashless catering system.  To ensure your child receives lunch each day (either free school meals or paid lunches), it is important that you pay by one of the two methods below.  We prefer parents to use our e-payment method to pay for their school meals via ParentPay.

  • Online via ParentPay.  Please click on the logo to take you directly to the ParentPay website. You should have received a unique activation username and password from the academy.  If you have not received this, please contact us on 0115 942 1300.

  • In the academy.  Your child will need to use one of the cash loading machines located near the canteens at both sites, loading cash directly onto their school ID card.
