  • Our friendly catering staff are always happy to help the students with any queries they may have. We have three separate kitchens so we can always find a tasty meal so please do ask the staff to help you.
  • Menu items and prices are subject to change at short notice depending on the availability of food items and increases in the costs from suppliers

Paying for School Meals

The school uses ‘WisePay’ to enable parents and staff to make secure online payments for school meals, and other items. Further information about how WisePay works is available on our  ‘Payments to School‘ page.

There is the option of setting a Daily spend limit for any student to prevent them spending more each day than you would like them to. The limit would include any items purchased during morning break. Parents/Guardians who would like to set a limit can email the school on info@ladymanners.derbyshire.sch.uk stating the amount you would like the student to be allowed to spend each day.

Please ensure that funds are available on your WisePay account in advance to pay for meals. To assist with this, an email reminder is sent to parents of students when their account balance reaches zero.

Free School Meals

Did you know that just by registering your children for Free School Meals, in addition to gaining the support yourself, the school will receive money which can then be used to help the students? Click here for more information.
