Cashless Catering System
Payment for lunches and other food and drink purchases from the canteen
The school operates a cashless card system for all payments for food or drink.
Each student is given an “ID/swipe card” that is credited with money by parents/carers and then is presented to pay for items. The amount spent is then deducted from the card’s balance. Free School Meal payments are automatically credited to the card.
The card is more than simply a payment card for food, drink or small stationery/office shop items. It is also the:
- School library card
- Student card for examinations or when classes are taken by substitute staff (eg illness)
- Staff and sixth form ID card to support school security
- Extra curricular attendance card
Students are expected to have the card in school together with their other equipment and the school journal.
