We are pleased to announce that we are installing a cashless catering system that will allow us to provide a faster, more efficient catering service, and eliminate the need for students to carry cash or Free School Meals cards.
As a result, from Monday 26th November the school canteen will not accept payments in cash. Students will be required to pay using a fingerprint or key fob.
In order for the cashless catering system to function, we are asking parents to provide consent for their child to have their fingerprint scanned. The fingerprint itself will not be stored; an algorithm will be made of it to be used only for the cashless catering system. The algorithm will be shared only with Nationwide Retail in order to link it to the correct student and Wisepay account.
Should you feel that you are unable to consent to fingerprint scanning, we will issue your child with a key fob instead that they will be able to swipe at the till.
Please complete the form below to indicate whether you consent to fingerprint scanning or whether you would prefer your child to receive a key fob.
You may change your mind regarding this consent at any time by writing to our Data Protection Officer at the address at the bottom of this page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
