We have a biometric cashless catering system in place and pupils purchase their refreshments using their pin code or finger scan. Please refer to the Biometric FAQS document and Biometric Permission slip below for further information.

Our preferred method of payment for catering will be online via ParentPay. However, for those unable to make payment by this method, cash payments for catering will also be possible via a ‘Revaluation machine’ which will be sited in the Refectory corridor at school, pupils will also be able to check their balance here. In emergencies, pupils may borrow lunch money. Pupils benefiting from free school meals have their biometric account automatically credited for easy use.
