Cashless School Meals System

Cashless School Meals System

We are delighted to announce that we have just signed an agreement with a company to develop a cashless system for our school canteen operations.  The system will be ready to roll out for the start of the academic year 2016/2017 and below are some details of how it will work and the benefits it will bring.

This new system for school meals and snacks is being introduced to ensure that pupils can get a healthy meal every day. Rather than receiving cash from parents, Mum and Dad can now load money directly into their son or daughter’s school meal account where the money is stored safely, ready to be spent at the cafeteria on site.

Everyone will receive a specially programmed card equipped with a smart chip using new RFID technology to pay for all food in the cafeteria. The card will be programmed for each pupil and will be used to access their school meal account stored on the new system in the school.


In the Cafeteria, simply use the card, instead of cash, to purchase your food and drinks with money stored in your school meal account. The new Point of Sale Terminals will have a special card reader where the card is used to pay, delivering a faster service, with shorter queues and no need to wait for any change.
Every time your card is presented at the reader, your balance is displayed. This lets you know how much money you have to spend.
