Cashless Catering System
Our cashless system recognises each individual pupil. Once the swipe card is placed on a card reader, key information can be seen by the catering staff. Each pupil’s card holds individual cash balances; records of cash spent and cash received, which monitors money spent on food for any specific date and time of day.
Convenient way of paying for Academy meals, no more looking for change every morning.
Discourages the misuse of dinner money through spending in shops outside of the Academy grounds.
Alleviates many of associated problems with the use of cash in schools. i.e.: Loss, theft and bullying.
Healthy eating is encouraged.
Queuing times are reduced through increased speed of service.
Automatic free meal allocation with the pupil remains anonymous.
