Biometric cashless system & ParentPay

Catering Academy have opted for a biometric system.  These biometric systems have become more common across schools in England in recent years.  The facility will link in with existing school IT systems and will enable parents to credit their child’s lunch account via an online payment, ParentPay.  Parents/Carers will have received letters from the school about activating their ParentPay account.
