*GOING LIVE* Cashless Catering from Monday 25 June
From Monday 25 June the College are introducing a Cashless Catering system that will make paying for school meals fast, convenient, efficient and easy.
System benefits include increased speed of service, reduced queueing times, increased uptake on Free School Meals, facility to pay online, no need to carry cash preventing loss, reporting facilities to help decrease waste and improve the overall efficiency of the meal service.
As its name suggests, the system removes the use of cash from the food purchasing process. Instead, students pay for their meals at the till by using either their finger scan (Biometrics) or a PIN number to access funds that have been pre-paid in to their own personal account.
Thank you to those parents and carers who have already successfully signed up to this system. Please be aware that students will not be able to access canteen services from Monday 25 June if they do not have a credit balance in their child’s pre-paid account. This can be achieved by either setting up an online account on School Gateway or using PayPoint.
Funds can be deposited quickly and conveniently online by parents and carers through School Gateway under ‘Payments’. Parents and carers will be able to monitor their child’s usage, account balance and make online top-ups as and when required.
The letter attached below explains how to register for the Cashless Catering system. This letter has also been sent home to parents.
