We have a cashless catering system in school. This system allows us to continue with the development of the school meal service, and will provide us with a more efficient, faster and ultimately better quality of service.
Our ParentPay/Cashless Catering system incorporates the latest technology and eliminates the need for students to carry cash throughout the day. It is also biometric (See FAQs) so there is no need for students to carry a card as the system will recognise the thumb of your child at the revaluation machine and at the tills.
Any amount of money can be paid into a student’s account, and any money spent on food and drink will be deducted on a daily basis.
We have three payment options available to you – online payments (through ParentPay), coin and note payments at the revaluation machine or finally Paypoint. All payment options are explained within the FAQ’s.
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 operating an ‘Opt In’ policy. If you choose not to have your child registered on the Biometric System a 4 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 require the consent of at least one parent in order that the biometric information of your child can be processed. Please be assured that this information remains within the school and that the biometric information taken is an algorithm and not the actual finger print.
School meals are available at a cost of £2.50 per day. Students pay for meals via our cashless system.
If you think you may be entitled to free school meals please contact Halton School Meals service.
Note: We strongly recommend you apply for free school meals if eligible to do so as this attracts a Pupil Premium payment for the School which is provided by Central Government and equates to a cash amount for your child’s School. This is then used to support children’s education through the provision of additional support and resources at the School.
If you have missed breakfast, why not come down to the school canteen and have your early morning breakfast there?
Prior to first lesson, the canteen is open for breakfast where it offers drinks, cereals and toast.
Break is at 11.05 am and is a chance for students to buy a snack.
The catering facilities at Saints Peter and Paul offers a variety of hot and cold meals. The canteen offer a varying selection of food including including pizza, baguettes, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, salad boxes and pasta dishes.
