Revised Cashless Catering Launch Date: Monday 11 July 2016
We are pleased to announce that Ulverston Victoria High School, in common with many other schools nationally and locally, is implementing a Cashless Catering System.
Please note the launch date has been postponed by one week due to a clash of events. Therefore parents will still need to provide dinner money for the week commencing Monday 4 July 2016, the original launch date. Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
These payment options are explained within the Cashless Catering FAQ’s on our website.
Each student will have their own school meal account. Parents can pay money into a student’s account and the cost of food and drinks will be deducted on a daily basis.
The system incorporates the latest biometric technology (please see Biometric Information on our website) which means that the system will recognise the thumb of your child at the cash top up machines located in school and at the tills in the canteen. All students and staff will be given training on how to use the system.
A daily ‘spend limit’ of £5 will be programmed into the system. This can be increased or decreased for an individual student by making a written request to the School Finance Office.
As per current legislation, we will be applying an ‘Opt In’ policy for biometric data and therefore request that you to complete the attached Biometric Consent Form. If you choose not to have your child registered on the Biometric System, a four digit PIN code will be allocated. Please note that PIN codes do not have the same level of security and it will be your child’s responsibility to remember the code and keep it secure at all times.
We trust that the information on our website about Cashless Catering should answer any questions you may have but if this is not the case a Parents Information Evening is to be held at the school (date to be announced) when the new cashless system will be explained and any further questions answered.
School Angel works with lots of big shopping brands in the UK which have agreed to donate a portion of the profit, they normally make on your shopping if you use the School Angel website to visit their shop. You are guaranteed to only pay exactly the same price, for whatever you buy, but UVHS will also receive a donation.
