We operate a “cashless catering” system. To use the service students have to be set up with an account which must be in credit for their child to obtain food.
Payment for school meals can be made online, through a cash service point in school or handing a cheque directly to the school kitchen (made payable to Aspens Catering Services).
Students on free school meals also need an account but do not need to credit their account as this will be done automatically on a daily basis for them.
Parents can use the account to monitor payments, view what food their child has purchased from the school kitchen and see how much has been spent. It also reduces queuing time for school meals.
In order to use the service students must be registered onto a “biometric student recognition” system. This involves taking a scan of their fingerprint (further details are available on our website in the School Catering section). This is a very secure system but we do need parental consent to do this so please complete the parental consent section. Alternatively we can issue a PIN number to students but parents should be aware that this is not as secure as the biometric system.
If you have any questions about any of the above please contact Angela Kingston, Finance Officer on Ext 158 (payment queries) or Mrs G Dodd, Catering Manager on Ext 139 (school meal queries) at the school.
