Cashless payment systems

We have cashless payment systems and school meal pre-order and pre-payment systems in many of our schools across the borough.

They work on an account basis - the pupil's account is loaded and then items purchased are deducted from the balance, meaning cash doesn't need to be handled on a daily basis. 


  • Quicker service times
  • Less queuing
  • Helps with the problem of losing "dinner money"
  • Avoids the risk of bullying
  • Anonymity is retained as free meals are loaded automatically.

Enquire at your school if you would like further information on the systems available.
