Cashless catering system
Westfield School operates a cashless catering system. All students for whom we have received parental permission via the completed ‘Westfield School Student Data Sheet’ will have a biometric scan of their finger taken on their first day in school, or during Y7 induction week. Students for whom no parental consent has been received will be issued with a PIN code.
The finger scan / PIN code allows students to purchase food and drinks from our canteen at breakfast, break and lunch time, subject to funds available on their account. Accounts can be topped up either by sending cash in with your child who can add it to their account using one of the top up machines in school, or by using the online payments system, ParentPay. Students who are in receipt of free school meals have their account credited daily with the current allowance.
You will receive a letter explaining how to activate your child’s lunch account on ParentPay shortly after they start at Westfield. You can read more about ParentPay here.
If you are unable to access online facilities or make online payments and do not wish for your child to bring cash into school, we can alternatively arrange for your child to be issued with a ‘PayPoint’ card for their lunch account which you can use at any shop displaying the ‘PayPoint’ logo. Please contact school if you require this option
