Cashless Payments

We are pleased to announce that the online cashless system in place to pay for school meals, trips and events is now live. Letters have been posted home which contain your unique ‘Invitation Code’ and ‘Registration Phrase’.

In order for parents/carers to make use of this secure e-payment system we have put together a short user guide which can be found below and is also noted in the letter. Please note that the ‘Invitation Code’ and ‘Registration Phrase’ are unique to you.
