Cashless and Biometric Catering

Neston High School operates a fully cashless catering system giving parents the freedom to top up their child’s catering account online at a convenient time for them.  The additional benefit of a cashless system is that students who are entitled to a free school meal have their allowance uploaded automatically each day and their entitlement remains anonymous.

There are two options for payments: online and cash top-up machines located in the student entrance and The Refectory.  Free school meals allowances are uploaded onto the system every morning with the option to top up extra amounts if parents wish to do so. The system is set up for biometric identification at the till point with the option for students to use a smart card if they prefer not to use the biometric element.  It is necessary for parents to sign a consent form before your child is registered on the biometric system.
