Free School Meals (FSM) and Uniform Grants

Some families may be eligible for school meals paid for by the government. Even if your child does not wish to eat meals prepared by the school, it is worth checking their eligibility, as each student entitled to free school meals could receive funding to help with tuition, uniform, equipment, coaching or a number of other resources.

To find out if your child is eligible, please use this link

If you qualify, you should complete the FSM and Uniform Grant form at the bottom of this page and return it via email (admissions@harrispurley.org.uk) or hand a printed copy to our receptionist.

Parent pay logoParentPay

The academy uses a cashless catering system. This avoids the need for students to bring money into the academy and ensures payments for food and drink purchases are quick and simple.

We will create a ParentPay account for all parents/carers during the enrolment process. Parents/carers add money to their child's ParentPay account through card or bank payments. Students access those funds using their thumb print at the tills. ParentPay can also be used to pay for other expenses such as equipment and trips abroad.

A biometric consent form will be provided during the enrolment process. Please ensure you complete the form and return it to our admissions team.

Parent View

Parent View is the Ofsted online questionnaire survey tool that enables parents/carers or in fact anyone with an email address to comment on a school against a set list of questions. Therefore it can be completed at any time during an academic year by people who do not have a child at the Academy as well as those who do. However it is not possible for the responses to be validated as completed by parents/carers of students at the Academy. The Academy therefore also uses hard copies of the same survey questions during Parent Evenings throughout the year for each year group in order to verify that the survey responses are completed by a parent/carer with a child/children in a particular year group at the Academy and discuss anything raised with parents/carers directly and also pass feedback to staff and Governors. https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/parent-view-results/survey/result/23154/current
