Making Payments

Queries…

We have increased our number of staff in the office to deal with parental issues and support.  Within this office staff are available face to face throughout the morning and via e-mail and telephone.  Not forgetting our Parent Support Adviser who is available for a more confidential chat each Wednesday without appointment.

Payments…

We request that all payments for session fees, visits and lunch payments are made for the week ahead on a Monday.  Older children can bring this money directly to the school office or parents can do this face to face or by using a sealed, named envelope or a money pocket. Cheques need to be made payable to Sefton MBC.

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 see Chris Cook in the school office for further information, the benefits of using this system can amount of savings of up to £1000 each year!

Dinners…

Please note that school dinner is now £2 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 half term (6 to 7 weeks) and complete full weeks of hot dinner (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.
