Cashless Catering

Our cashless catering system incorporates the latest technology and eliminates the need for students to carry cash throughout the day.

Due to Covid - 19, there have been several changes to the cashless catering system including:

1  All payments will be expected to be made online via your child’s SIMs Pay account.  Therefore, students will no longer be able to pay cash via the reval machine in Student Reception.

2  Students will not be using the finger scanner to make payment for meals but instead will be given a  4 digit PIN code which they will use instead to identify their account.  This code will be given to each child at the beginning of the new term.

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.  If your child receives free school meals their account will be deducted in the same way.  A daily ‘spend limit’ of £5.00 will be programmed into the system.  This can be increased or decreased for an individual student by making a written request to the Academy finance office.
