无现金餐饮

Our school canteen uses a cashless system at the tills. This allows for multiple payment options and speeds the flow of girls through the dining hall. It also allows free school meals to be claimed without other students being aware of this - FSM eligible students use the system in an identical manner to other students.

This cashless system is the only way to pay for items from the canteen at breakfast, 课间休息和午餐.

食物如何支付?

Every student has an account with a balance of money in it. This account can be topped up with a debit or credit card online through Wisepay or with cash in school (notes and coins).

指纹系统是如何工作的?

Both thumbprints will be taken in school on your daughter's first day with us. The system does not take an image of the thumbprint; instead it derives a pattern from a selection of unique points on the thumbprint and converts this pattern into an alphanumeric string. This string is then stored in a secure, encrypted database running on school equipment.

When your daughter presents her thumbprint at the till to purchase food, this alphanumeric string is generated by the reader and compared to the stored data. At no time is any image of a fingerprint ever stored for retrieval.

We register both thumbprints in case of an injury to either hand.

如果我选择不使用指纹系统呢?

If you opted out of biometric registration, your daughter will be issued a 4 digit ID number instead. When purchasing food she can type this number into the till to identify herself. A photograph is displayed on screen to make sure ID numbers are not used by other students.

Unfortunately, numbers allocated cannot be changed in order to prevent clashes on the system.

给一个账户充值最好的方法是什么?

The cashless catering system is closely integrated with our 网上支付系统Wisepay. This system not only allows you to top up an account 24 hours a day but also to review any top ups made in school with cash. Details of your daughter's purchases are also listed for your information.

Wisepay is the school's preferred top up method.

然而 cash can be brought into school and added to an account using the cash loader situated in Roberts Hall. This is an automatic machine accessible throughout the school day and accepts coins (5p-£2 denominations) and notes (£5, £10). Any money added on this cash loader is immediately added to your daughter's account. As noted above, details of cash top ups are listed on your Wisepay account for your records.

如何检查一个帐户的余额?

Balances can be checked online at MCAS 24 hours a day. The VLE will also display this information once logged in. Your daughter can check her balance in school at the cash loader - even if she is not topping up with any money, she can identify herself with her fingerprint/ID code and it will display the account balance.

免费学校餐是如何运作的?

One of the major benefits of the cashless system is that it allows 免费校餐 to be claimed completely discreetly. Any girl claiming 免费校餐 will use the system in exactly the same way as other students - even the till operator will not be aware that the money has come from a Free School Meal allowance.

Free School Meal accounts will have a daily allowance of £3.15. 第一个£3.15 spent in a day will be deducted from this allowance. It can be spent at any time during the day - breakfast, recess or lunch - but does not roll over to the next day.

Girls claiming 免费校餐 can 'top up' their account the same as anyone else; this balance is used if your daughter spends over the £3.15日摄食量. 

With this new system we are hopeful that all students eligible for 免费校餐 will apply for them. We are keen for your daughter to have a good meal every day and for you to take full advantage of the support available to you. 另外, a lot of government funding (such as the 学生保险费) is now tied to Free School Meal claims; a student who claims 免费校餐 for only a single term allows us to claim additional funding for the remaining time that the student is with us.

Could my daughter spend all her allowance at once?

Accounts have a daily spend limit on them - currently £8.00一天. 学生 will not be able to spend over this amount in a day. £8.00 comfortably allows a student to eat at breakfast, 休息和午餐喝酒, 合乐888相信这是一个合理的数额.

然而, if you would like this limit changed for your daughter, please contact the school with details and we can adjust on an individual basis.

My daughter has a specific dietary requirement. 无现金系统能监控这一点吗?

Where we are aware of an allergy or religious belief, your daughter will be automatically prevented from purchasing items containing problematic ingredients. If you wish to make us aware of any such considerations, 请按正常方式与学校联系.
