Making Payments

Queries…

We have a large number of staff in the office, however there are dedicated staff members that will deal with specific parental and family issues and support, please see our staffing list for more information on this.  Within our school office staff are available face to face throughout the morning only and via e-mail and telephone throughout the day.  Our Children’s Centre staff are available for a more confidential chat without appointment.  Class dojo can also be used to message our staff team about any personal issues or questions, teacher will invite you to join your new class dojo in September – this is essential for keeping in touch with live learning in the classroom.

Payments…

We request that all payments for session fees, visits/experiences, lunch, snack and wraparound care are made for the week ahead on a Monday via our new Parent Pay or via a local pay point.  Please remember that Hudson is a cashless school in September, if you require any further information about this then do not hesitate to make contact with our school office.

Some workplaces also support the school voucher scheme, where payments can be made directly from your salary before tax is deducted – this system is accepted at Hudson to support the payment of wrap around childcare in our breakfast club and willow den, and also for additional sessions within our Nursery.  Please again see a member of our school office management and administration team for this. The benefits of using this system can amount to savings of up to £1000 each year!

Dinners…

Please note that school dinner is now £2.10 each day, this money needs to be paid a week in advance (see above).  Due to past problems with our catering service families need to commit to hot dinners for the whole full week (unless your child has flexible provision within our Nursery).  Many children within our school are also entitled to a free school meal and do not currently take up this offer.  You may be interested to know that even if your child does not wish to stay for a hot dinner, if you are entitled and apply, then the school and your child will still benefit as it results in increased funding for better resources and ultimately a better learning environment.  There is a set criterion and a short application which needs to be completed our office staff would be happy to talk through this or answer any questions.

School Fund…

Like last year we are asking families to pay £1 per week per child to cover daily snack and fruit access and also build up reserves.  These reserves supplement school visits and reduce overall costs for special events your child takes part in.   Again this is something you need to pot out of on ParentPay if you do not wish to be charged for it and your child to accept this daily snack.
