We operate a cashless catering system which incorporates the
latest technology and runs in conjunction with a secure biometric finger
Each student has an account which can be credited via our secure on-line payment system 'Parentpay', or topped up with cash or cheque. When buying food the cost is simply deducted from the students account when authorised via the finger scanner. No cash will be accepted at the servery counter although it may still be used at the vending machines. See the Important Notes and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
To enable you and your child to benefit from the biometric system, one parent or guardian will need to sign and return a consent form. We would like to emphasize that Chenderit School will comply at all times with the Data Protection Act and with the provision of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (which will come into force in September 2013) regarding the use of biometric data.
