Changes to Cashless Lunch Payments
From September 2016 Ormskirk School are introducing a new cashless lunch payment system.
Some of the main benefits include:-
Lunch balances are now shown
We will no longer be accepting cash or cheque payments, all top-ups to lunch cards must be made via the school online payments system. If pupils do not have funds available they will not be able to make a purchase and it will not be possible for accounts to be overdrawn. Please ensure your child's account has sufficient funds available in advance of using the school canteen.
Payments can now be made online using the School Gateway. If you have not previously used our payments system please refer to the Parents section of the school website for further information. ICT Support is available throughout the Summer break. We strongly advise making any required payments during the holiday period as ICT Support are always very busy at the start of term and may not be able to help with any issues as quickly as usual.
Free School Meals
If your child is eligible for Free School Meals it is only necessary to add funds to the cashless catering account if you wish to supplement the daily allowance. Please ensure your child is registered to receive the allowance as this must be done each academic year. Click here for further information.
All systems should currently be working as normal.
If you're having trouble logging in to services, your network password may have expired. You can reset it remotely here.
If you require any further details please contact ICT support.
Teaching staff laptops are now ready for collection.

Summer Concert 2016 - Music from Stage & Screen
Congratulations to all our fantastic musicians who performed at this year’s summer concert: there was so much incredible talent on display! We enjoyed performances from Young Voices, Senior Voices, Super Strings, Tutti Fluti, School of Rock, Brassed Off and Band as well as a number of exceptional soloists. Repertoire ranged from ‘Jupiter’, The Planets Suite by Holst to Janis Joplin’s ‘Piece of My Heart’. If you would like to be involved in our winter concerts, please join one of our ensembles in September; everyone is welcome. Also, if you have been inspired to start playing an instrument or to start singing tuition, please see the ‘instrumental lessons’ page for details.

Big congratulations go to all the pupils who entered the competition, the Governors were blown away by the talent on show and found choosing just 1 winner from each age group very difficult. They though the work was exceptional!
Very well done to Hannah Brown, Chloe Rigby & Holly Atkinson who were the overall winners for each age group.
