Cashless Catering

  • Convenient way of paying for school meals. No more looking for change every morning.
  • Discourages the misuse of school dinner money through spending in shops outside of the school grounds.
  • Alleviates many of the associated problems with the use of cash in schools. i.e. loss, theft and bullying.
  • Queuing times are reduced through increased speed of service.
  • Automatic free school meal allocation with the student remaining anonymous.
  • Detailed reports to analyse all aspects of the use of the system.
  • The processes involved in cashless catering make students more aware about the financial aspect of their account, thereby teaching them important life skills.
  • The Diner can deliver a more efficient service.  A more efficient delivery of service helps the Diner to provide wholesome, healthy and enjoyable school meals at a lower cost.

Parents can:

  • Pay by cheque or notes directly to the school office to ensure that the money is used to purchase a school lunch or breakfast/brunch.
  • Set a daily spend limit (currently set at £5) for their child and,
  • Available later next year, pay online and, review your child’s purchases and nutritional information (more details will be available in the new year).
