The Wilnecote School will be introducing a Cashless Catering system on the 3rd of December 2018.
After a recent tender process Chartwells have been awarded the contract to provide the schools catering service for the next three years.
As part of the new contract there will be several improvements including, a new outdoor service point to allow students to purchase on the go food and drink in the playground area, a new and improved menu, and possibly the biggest change will be the new cashless catering system.
The Wilnecote School is constantly striving to improve the school experience for our students and this new system will allow us to continue with the development of an improved school meal service and will provide our students with a more efficient, faster and ultimately better quality of service.
This system incorporates the latest technology and has many benefits including:
- Safety The elimination of the need for pupils to carry cash during the day thus contributing to their safety.
- Reliability The system uses your child’s thumb print so there is no need for pupils to carry cash or a card as the system will recognise the thumb of Your child at the tills.Convenience Online payments for the system can be made using your Parent Pay account.
- Discretion students who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM) will simply have their FSM allowance applied to their account daily. We have included with this letter an FSM application form which can be completed with the consent form if you believe that your child may be eligible.
- Healthier eating The system enables parents/carers to monitor the food purchased.
All parents should have received a letter through the post explaining the process, if you did not receive the letter please update your records via our contact page.
