Cashless Catering

CFGS operates a cashless, biometric finger scan system for school meals. At CFGS, both staff and students use this system with the benefits of reduced queueing, fast, secure transactions and no stigma being attached to Free School Meal recipients. There is no image of the fingerprint stored, but a series of digits is created so the computer can recognise a student/member of staff when their finger is placed on a scanner.

For students who are not free school meals, cash for meals is paid into the machine at the start of each week or half term, as food is purchased with the biometric scan the balance is updated so students can see how much money they have left.  Students can ‘top-up’ their account at a number of payment machines around the school as and when required.

Written parental and student consent is sought prior to the school taking and processing the student’s biometric data. The school treat all data with appropriate care and it complies with data protection principles as set out in the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. CFGS also provide alternative means where a parent or student has refused consent.
