Biometric Cashless Catering System
Hampstead School uses a biometric recognition system. The system is used nationally for cashless catering extremely successfully.
The system links to ParentPay, which is where parents are able to credit their child/children's lunch account at their convenience. Parent Pay is also the system for paying for trips, lockers, school planners and a small stock of school ties held by the school and allows Parents/Carers to see what their child/children have purchased from the Dining Hall. The catering staff in the Dining Hall are not able to accept cash from students.
The cashless system provides a number of very significant benefits including:
- Parents/Carers being able to monitor purchases from the Dining Hall
- Reduction in opportunities for bullying as there is nothing that can be stolen for use by another student
- Reduction in the need for cash handling
- Students do not have to remember to bring a card
- Reduction in queueing time
