We are pleased to announce that we are installing a new biometric cashless system for the catering service in April 2009. Our desire is to continue to provide and improve on the quality of the school meal service at our college.
We are sure you will appreciate the advantages the new system will now offer the parents and students of the college. The system will also enable us to deliver a more efficient, faster service and to continue to provide wholesome, healthy, and enjoyable meals at the lowest cost.
For your convenience and to assist us in our administration of the service, a method of payment by cheque will be introduced. The cheque can be made out to ‘South Holderness Technology College, and placed into the Post Box provided near the Finance Office. Please write the full Name of Student and Class reference on back of cheque and place in an envelope.
Cash Notes can also be placed into an envelope and posted in this Post Box. - Please include the full Name of Student and Class reference and place in an envelope. If payment is made for two students, please make sure both names are entered.
Any amount of money can be paid into your account held within the system, money spent on food will be taken out of the system and you can always check by using the revaluation terminal to see how much you have left.The college is also able to provide you with a report detailing each item of food served, each credit made to the system, for any time period and show a current balance.
There is a daily ‘spend limit’ programmed into the system of £3.50 which can be increased or decreased for an individual student by making a written request to the school kitchen. This includes purchases at morning break and lunch.
However, should you wish your child to continue to bring ‘dinner money’ to college, the facility for accepting cash payments for the day or a number of days will of course always be available.
However, all cash will have to be entered into the system by using the automatic cash terminals and cannot be used to buy food directly at the dinner counters.
They are programmed to accept £2 - £1 - 50p - 20p - 10p coins.
