School Meals


EMS School Catering

We run our own kitchen at EMS - this gives us a lot more flexibility with what we can offer the students. We have a 3 week menu and fantastic Meal Deal options to give our students healthy nutritious meals on a daily basis.

Payment System

Money must be put onto students account before buying a meal. We are now a cashless school and use an online payment system.

We use Parent Pay.  Visit here. www.Parentpay.com If your child is currently a student at EMS you should have received a letter with your unique Username and Password. If you haven't got this or are experiencing any issues accessing your account please contact finance@ems.bhcet.org.uk and we can get you up and running.

Money can be paid in periodically at your own convenience but we would suggest that you credit the account with enough funds to last a week or a month.

Free School Meals

Help Your School
