Important Notice: Home Study

Owing to the current situation, we have put in place plans for home study for our young people, to ensure that they are still able to access the full curriculum. Work will be set regularly on Class Charts by class teachers with specific instructions for individual lessons.

Pupils should aim to follow their daily timetable of five lessons per day. We would like to maintain a breadth and variety of study so there is no need to focus on any one sequence of lessons, on Showbie for example, as this may become overwhelming. Pupils should aim to complete work in line with the number of lessons per subject they have each week e.g. Spanish in Year 9 = 2 lessons per week. There should also be an additional homework task.

Cashless Lunch Payments

Ormskirk School operates a cashless lunch payment system.

​Aside from the ease and speed of service during break and lunch times other benefits include:- 

  • A self-service counter for take away food (paninis, sandwiches, drinks etc)
  • Pre-order system using touch screens
  • Balance and spending activity shown in the online payment system
  • Biometric recognition

 We cannot accept 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. It is 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. If you have any difficulties which are not solved by following our help guides please contact ICT Support.

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.
