Orchard Head Junior, Infant & Nursery School

Cashless Payments


From April 2017, Orchard Head School became a cashless school, i.e. cash or cheque payments are not accepted for school activities.

Payment for school trips, residential visits, after-school clubs, etc. can be made online at www.schoolmoney.co.uk (or via the link located on the Home page of Orchard Head School’s website).

School Money gives parents/carers the freedom to safely make online payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Please note: the system may not be compatible with some mobile phones.  If this is the case, please try again using a desktop/laptop computer or tablet.

We are aware that some parents/carers do not have access to the internet, therefore payment may be made via debit or credit card, either over the phone or at the school office.

The management of school meals and Breakfast Club is carried out by an independent company – currently ISS.  Payment for these services can be made online at www.feedinghungryminds.co.uk (or via the link located on the Home page of Orchard Head School’s website).

Two exceptions to the above are for:

  • charity fundraising, e.g. Comic Relief, Children in Need, etc., as this money does not belong to school
  • events organised by our fundraising team, Friends of Orchard Head, e.g. non-uniform days.

Parents/carers will be informed in advance of these events.
