Fresh Start have a bespoke ordering system called Meal Manager which lets you order and pay securely for meals online.

You can order for the whole term, a few weeks or just a week at a time and they offer the flexibility of ordering any day of the week. Just choose between 1 and 5 meals per week on any day and click confirm. If you pay for your child's meals they use a secure system with Sagepay to do this.

The first time you go to order meals you will need your child's unique pupil ID and pupil password which will of been sent out by school to each child.

To order follow this quick step by step guide:

  • Register using your email address and choose your own password
  • Claim your child using their Pupil ID and Pupil password (if you have multiply children at school you will need to claim each child using their unique ID and password).
  • Choose your meals, making sure you have chosen all the days you require.
