Launch of Cashless Catering – Monday 9 September

The new cashless catering system will go live on Monday 9 September, with the biometrics recognition system going live on Monday 16 September. 

This means that you will need to credit your child’s account with funds to enable them to purchase a break time snack (new offer for Secondary students) or their lunch from Monday 9 September.  I have attached a FAQ sheet regarding this new process for your information, and a copy of the new price list.

What do you need to do?

Reception to Year 2

As your child will receive a free school meal, you do not need to do anything

Year 3 to Year 5

Please log on to ParentPay and credit the Healthy Roots School Lunch payment item with funds to cover your child’s food

Year 7

Unfortunately due to a technical issue with ParentPay, you will not receive your activation code for the ParentPay portal until 10.00 on Monday morning.  Once received, please log on and credit the Healthy Roots School Lunch payment item with funds to cover your child’s food

Year 8 to Year 11

Please log on to ParentPay and credit the Healthy Roots School Lunch payment item with funds to cover your child’s food

Free School Meal Students

If your child is in receipt of a free school meal, you do not need to do anything as your child’s account will be credited in the morning with the value of a hot meal and pudding.  If you would like to credit your child’s account with additional funds, please credit the Healthy Roots School Lunch payment item on ParentPay

If you would prefer, please email your name and your child’s name to info@thegatwickschool.org.uk to confirm that you opt in to the biometric system.

If you do not want to opt in, your child will be able to use the cashless catering system by entering their individual reprographics code, or via the look up option on the system.
