What are the arrangements for lunch?
Students can either purchase food from Willow Restaurant, Oak Café, the Bonsai Food Bar or bring a packed lunch.
Students’ accounts can be credited using debit or credit card online via Parent Pay or Pay Point Bar Code, (Bar code issued on request).
The Academy will provide you with login and password details to access the Parent Pay system.
Parents are able to view their child’s lunch account balance and the details of what is being purchased online via the parent pay system & Pupils can check their account balance at any till point.
If a student forgets their packed lunch or discovers that there are no funds in their account when they try to buy lunch they should go to the Finance Office in Willow building. A one-off loan will be provided to enable the student to have lunch and a member of the Finance team will then contact parents immediately.
Students are identified in the Restaurant, the Café, the Bonsai Food Bar and the LRC by use of biometric data held for this purpose. This involves a finger scan which is converted into numerical data and stored for each student. No register of fingerprints is kept, nor is it possible to reconstitute a finger print from the data we hold.
If you are unwilling to have your child’s biometric information used in this way, or would like to talk further about this please contact Mr C Key, Executive Finance Officer.
