Improvements to Online Payment for Cashless Catering in Secondary Schools
A letter has been sent out to all parents and carers of pupils registered at Secondary schools across Aberdeenshire in relation to the payment for school meals. School meal payments should be simpler following an upgrading to an improved system for online payments. This will help reduce administration and cash handling in schools and to improve the customer experience for parents and carers paying into the system, allowing balances and account history to be viewed.
The new system will require one off registration. See important details by clicking on the following link-
As far as the pupil experience will be concerned, there will be no difference for Secondary school pupils and online payments for Primary school pupils will be introduced during the coming academic year through a phased roll-out programme.
All Secondary schools have been transferring to the new system over the Summer holidays and this will be operational for the start of the new term. Any balances remaining at the end of the last school year (2014-15) will be automatically transferred across to the new system.
What's on the Menu?
Food provision for lunch and breaktime at all Aberdeenshire Secondary schools includes a wide range of Traditional and Modern options.
The use of express style counters and the introduction of cashless catering facilities have been welcomed by pupils and helped to create a contemporary food service that they are familiar with.
Traditional tastes for favourites such as Scotch Broth, Beef Casserole and Macaroni & Cheese are catered for and play an important part in the development of menus.
More 'contemporary' foods are also available to pupils which include Hot Panini sandwiches, Tortilla Wraps, MunchPots, Pasta Pots and a Pre-order Lunch service.
