Cashless Catering


The school operates a “cashless” catering system to pay for meals in school. The system operates via a biometrics system which uses a scan of a student’s index finger or thumb for recognition. Please be reassured that the system does not store a finger print.

If you are happy that we take the finger scan from your child, please hand in your completed consent form on the Y7 Open Evening or return it to the School Finance Office at any time before this date. If you would like to speak to a member of staff to discuss any objections, please contact a member of the school’s Leadership Team to discuss your individual concerns. The school’s preferred method of payment is Parent Pay- please contact the Finance Office on 333233 Ext 163 if you need any further information on this electronic payment option. Please note that any funds remaining on a student’s account as they leave Turton can be reimbursed. Any funds that are not claimed are transferred to the school’s hardship fund after the close of the academic year.

Further details of the system and a consent form can be found in the letter below.
